Tahini Sauce

My sister-in-law is vegan and was coming to visit.  I like having food at the house for her other than my hummus, which she loves.  It’s very simple yet savory.

6 Tbs. tahini

6-8 Tbs. Water

1 clove garlic, crushed

½ lemon, juiced

Salt to taste

Chopped parsley for garnish

Mix all ingredients in a bowl.  The sauce should be a little thinner than the consistency of yogurt.  You can serve this sauce over caramelized onions and roasted cauliflower or as a sauce for falafel, just to name a few.  The sauce might come up a few times again as it’s very popular in Middle Eastern cooking.  Not only did my sister-in-law love it, so did my vegan friend that came over for dinner a few nights later.  Shhhh, it’s great left over too.

This serves 2 and makes about a ½ cup.
