Banana Tahini Drink by Paul Nison, p. 138

With only three ingredients: one banana , two tablespoons tahini and a cup of water, Paul Nison’s Banana Tahini definitely qualifies to be placed in the Minimalist Meal category.

Tahini, a paste of ground sesame seeds traditional used in hummus, may seem like an odd coupling with banana but it produces a surprisingly appetizing beverage.
Preparation is a breeze, just a swift whirl in the blender provides you with a tasty, smooth beverage to please any grumbling stomach. My husband, the Man on the Raw, went as far as to say that he would drink this every day.

Which he proceeded to do the next day and the next and the next and the...well you get the picture. Like a mad mathematician, he added, subtracted, multiplied and divided ingredients to each batch to achieve a different version of the last. Below is the recipe he settled on to whet his appetite.
