Homemade Basic Tahini Sauce

Tahini, aka sesame butter, is a pantry staple that mixes well in dips and sauces – making everything creamier, nuttier, and a little bit Mediterranean. It is also a great source of calcium and the essential amino acid lysine.

Try this simple sauce over dark leafy greens, grains, tempeh, sweet potatoes, or as a dip or smear for your favorite wrap.

¼ cup tahini
¼ cup water
1 tablespoon tamari
Freshly ground black pepper

Optional add-ins:

  • dried or fresh minced dill
  • lemon juice
  • maple syrup
  • brown rice vinegar

Whisk together the tahini, water, and tamari. Stir in any add-ins and season with freshly ground black pepper. Enjoy!
