Tahini Sauce

1 Cup Tahini
1 Lemon ~ Juiced
2 Garlic Cloves ~ mashed
1/2 – 1 Teaspoon Cumin
A shake of Red Pepper Flakes
Salt to taste


  1. Mix Tahini well in the jar combining the paste at the bottom with the oil floating on top, add to a bowl (Pops used a handheld mixer, this works really well in a small food processor)
  2. Beat the tahini, add water and keep mixing until well combined and tahini turns white
  3. Add lemon juice, garlic, salt, cumin, red pepper flakes and keep going until you get the consistency you like it. This can be made much looser so that it pours instead of spreads. Keep adding water until you reach your preference.
