Lemon dill tofu

So, I have this huge jar of tahini in my cupboard that I’ve been trying to use up for forever.

Also, my dill plants have been growing like CRAZY. Seriously, what am I supposed to do with all that dill?

This recipe was really a way of me throwing all that stuff together to get rid of it, while also making something delicious. I’m pretty happy with the result!
