Tahini sauce is a simple, tangy, creamy, smooth, and flavor-packed sauce. It’s made from tahini, a dense paste made from crushed sesame seeds. Tahini sauce is a mixture of tahini paste, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and water.
All you need to make this tahini recipe is sesame seeds and a little bit of olive oil. You will just toast the sesame seeds for a little bit and then blend them up with a little bit of oil until you get a nice and smooth paste. Instead of olive oil grapeseed oil or canola oil can also be used.
To save time I am not making tahini paste separately rather combined the toasted sesame seeds along with garlic, lemon juice, salt, oil, and made Tahini sauce directly.
Good tahini sauce should be rich and luxurious and should taste mildly nutty and savory. This tahini sauce recipe is incredibly versatile, as it shines on falafel, salads, pita sandwiches, bowls, and more!
Tahini contains more protein than milk and most nuts. It’s a rich source of B vitamins that boost energy and brain function, vitamin E, which is protective against heart disease and stroke, and important minerals, such as magnesium, iron, and calcium.
Well, I was craving hummus and didn’t have any tahini on-hand, so I quickly whipped some up and made a fabulous batch of hummus with it. Tahini is super simple to make yourself and tastes even better than store-bought!
