Tahini Sauce Recipe
1 cup tahini (sesame seed paste)
3/4 cup room temp water
3 cloves raw garlic
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp chopped fresh parsley
Blend tahini paste, a little water, garlic, lemon juice and salt together in a food processor or blender till sauce is creamy. Once blending, the sauce will turn into a smooth paste. If mixture is too thick, slowly add more water until it reaches the preferred consistency. You may need quite a bit of water depending on the thickness of your tahini paste. Add more lemon juice or salt, if desired.
