Tahini Sauce

to accompany bgp's mujadera.

1/2 cup yoghurt
2 tablespoons tahini
1 tablespoon lemon juice
salt to taste

just mix it all together. If you want to give it a bite you can add raw garlic or even a little cayenne. To make it pretty and green add some chopped flatleaf parsley.
This recipe easily multiplies and if you dont want to make a big lentil rice thing goes very well with this rice salad:

3 cups brown rice
2 tomatoes
2 carrots
2 sticks celery
1 can chick peas

Put the rice in a pot with 5-6 cups of water. Cover and bring to a boil, then turn the burner to low. Cook until the rice has absorbed the water.
Meanwhile chop up the vegetables.

It's meant to be eaten by putting the vegtables and chick peas over the rice and topping it with the tahini sauce.
If you have a wealth of containers you can bring the vegetables in all separately so people can pick and choose, If not just mix it all together and people will still be happy. Keep the tahini sauce on the side so people can add their own.
