Tahini Sauce

This sauce is the perfect replacement for mayo on sandwiches or a nice change for a veggie dip but is super delicious on Falafel Burgers where I have duplicated the recipe.  I have even thinned this and used it as a salad dressing.


  • 1 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 1/2 teas salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup water


  1. Put all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.  Thin to desired consistency.

I use fresh lemon juice because I feel that it is brighter but the bottled variety would work as well.  This recipe makes lots so unless you are a real fan make a half recipe.
