Tahini Sauce

Tahini Sauce Recipe (How to Make Tahini)


Description

BEST tahini sauce recipe with lime juice, fresh garlic and parsley! Serve it as part of your mezze table, or use it to jazz up sandwiches like falafel pitas or chicken shawarma; or to drizzle on things like roasted cauliflower. The possibilities are endless!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1-2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup tahini paste
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (or lemon juice, if you prefer)
  • 1/4 cup cold water, more if needed
  • 1 cup fresh chopped parsley leaves, stems removed first (optional)

Instructions

  1. Using a mortar and pestle, crush the garlic cloves with the salt into a paste (or mince the garlic and season with salt.)
  2. Add the crushed garlic, tahini paste and lime juice to the bowl of a food processor and blend (it will be thick as it emulsifies.) Add a little bit of water and blend again until you reach the desired consistency.
  3. Transfer the tahini to a serving bowl, and if you like stir in fresh chopped parsley. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Cook's Tip: Use only a little bit of water at a time until you reach your desired consistency. Generally, tahini sauce should have a runny, salad dressing-like consistency. But, if you prefer tahini more as a dip, simply use less water.
  • Cook's Tip: Double this recipe if you're serving a large number of people, it will be consumed fast!
  • Make Ahead Tip: You can make this tahini sauce ahead of time, refrigerate in a tight-lid container for 2 to 3 days.
