Tahini Sauce

By October 5, 2013 Recipe Box, Sauces & Dips

OK – so here’s the Tahini Sauce recipe I promised you. This stuff works magic with those edamame patties I made earlier this week.

This stuff couldn’t get any simpler and it’s a healthy alternative to those not-so-healthy white sauces out there.

Tahini. Water. Lemon Juice. Garlic. Salt. Parsley. 

Pretty easy, right?

Let’s do it…

Tahini Sauce

Makes ~1 cup (16 TBS, 1 TBS per serving)

1/2 cup tahini

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup lemon juice + 2 TBS

3 garlic cloves

– Place all ingredients into a food processor and blend away until smooth. You may want to play around with the ingredients to find the flavor you like best. That’s what I did 😉

– Enjoy!
