Date Syrup and Sesame Paste: Tahina u Robb طحينة و رُب

Some foods are just made for each other – as every Libyan knows, tuna and harissa go hand in hand, like peanut butter and jelly. Tahina (sesame paste)and Robb (date syrup) are the Arab version of PB&J, making a perfect quick high-energy snack when scooped up with or spread on warm flat bread. You can mix them together in one bowl or dip the bread alternately in the sweet Robb and nutty Tahini. Either way, Tahina and Robb go together perfectly.
