Tahini sauce

The tahini sauce is a mixture of tahini paste (sesame paste), lemon juice, garlic, cumin and water. By adjusting the amount of the water, it get a rich creamy texture and served as a dipping sauce, or a thinner texture and served as a creamy sauce drizzled over grilled meats, salads or grilled vegetables. As dip it can be served as a paleo diet alternative to hummus. It is ideal for those with intolerance to dairy products or following a paleo diet.

  1. In a food processor or high speed blender, add the tahini and about half cup water. Pulse a couple of times to incorporate the ingredients.
  2. Add the lemon juice, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper and pulse a few times until you have a smooth creamy paste.
  3. Add water gradually and pulse after each addition, until you get the desired consistency. The amount of one cup of water to one cup pf tahini gives a hummus like texture to the sauce. If you would like to have a thinner sauce (e.g. to drizzle over grilled meats or a salad) then you need to add more water.
