Ingredients

  • Makes almost 2 cups:
  • 1/2 cup tahini paste
  • ​1 clove garlic
  • ​1/4 - 1/3 cup lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 2-3 heaping tablespoons plain yogurt (optional)
  • warm water
  • fresh parsley
  • ​pinch of ground sumac (optional)
  • salt, to taste

Instructions

1

​Stir the tahini paste well before measuring it. The oil tends to rise to the top of the container.

2

​Place the tahini paste in a mixing bowl along with the lemon juice, 2 tablespoons yogurt, 1/4 teaspoon salt and mix well.

3

​The mixture will begin to thicken and sieze up. Don't worry!

4

​Grate the garlic into the sauce and add enough warm water to mix it into a smooth paste. Add as much water as you like to achieve your desired consistency. Thick tahini sauce is great if using as a sandwich spread. Thinner tahini sauce is great for drizzling over foods or as a dressing.

5

​When desired consistency is reached, taste for seasoning. Add more lemon juice and/or salt.

6

​Garnish with finely chopped fresh parsley. Sprinkle some sumac over the sauce and serve.

7

​Enjoy!
