Tahini Sauce

Sunday with Marlena Spieler

While I love to make most dishes from scratch, there are a few that I just rather buy from the grocery store. Tahini sauce is one of them, so why this post? Marlena, add a bit of a kick to the store bought Tahini sauce.

Tahini Sauce – ½ cup

Water – 2 T

Lemon Juice – ½ tsp

Garlic – 1, finely minced

Cumin powder – ¼ tsp

Olive oil – 1 tsp

Red chillies – ¼ tsp or to taste

Chopped parsley – ¼ tsp, optional

  • Whisk the tahini sauce with water until smooth and well incorporated.
  • In a small bowl, mix lemon juice, garlic and cumin powder. Pour that over the sauce and fold it well.
  • Drizzle olive oil over the sauce and garnish with chillies and chopped parsley. ( we used  chopped jalapenos on oil)

Drizzle this over your salad, falafel or just a dipping sauce for pitas chips. Eileen has used tahini sauce in her recipe today and Mel has some tasty looking chicken and deep dried artichokes. YUM!
