  1. Combine the artichokes, fennel, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and oil in a food processor. Process until smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Serve with grilled Turkish flat bread, pita bread, or over a fresh tomato and parsley salad.
  • Tahini is a ground sesame seed paste-you'll find it in large supermarkets or health food stores. It has a rich, nutty flavor, and is used throughout the Middle East.
