Cynthia: I’m going to show you how to make Lemon Tahini Sauce, which is a really versatile, really flavorful sauce. It’s the typical sauce that goes on a falafel. You can also put it on rice, on noodles and it makes a fabulous salad dressing too.
And you got a half of cup of Tahini. You’ve got a fourth of a cup of olive oil. You’ve got the juice from one and a half lemons. A little bit of tamari, garlic and a pinch of cayenne.
So, there’s not sea little water in this dish. The water is used to get the consistency of the sauce to the place where you want it to be. So let’s start out really thick and you can drizzle water until you get it to just about where you’ve like it.
Cynthia: Sorry, Darrel. I need water.
Darrel: How much?
Cynthia: Two full cup.
Darrel: Hold on.
Cynthia: Thank you. So let’s get this started. I’m going to put the Tahini in the blender here. This is just a blender sauce, so it’s really easy. And Tahini is made from sesame seeds. It’s just sesame seed paste. Sesame seeds have been around the long time, and nice whole food. It’s a fatted doesn’t go bad easily. It’s very stable.
Tahini one in, olive oil is going in, and the lemon juice is going on that’s because the sesame seed the oil in it is part mono unsaturated and part polyunsaturated and the poly part is protected by anti-oxidant called sesamol which is kind of cool.
Okay, Tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic. You can put in more garlic if you want it really garlicky some people doing that’s cool. Little tamari you could substitute salt if you want it too, and my little pinch of cayenne and then I’m going to make a batches oils right now. Here comes the one I love perforate a little bit in there.
Great, so see how that’s really thicken out that would be even hard to force, so now I’m going to add a little water. Some of this water, and if I wanted it to be a salad dressing I did quite a bit more. It’s good. This will keep in the refrigerator in the jar for like a couple of weeks or something is great.
Okay and I’m just going to put some on some rice here. Darrel?
Cynthia: Are you hungry?
Darrel: I’ll put what do you like, what?
Cynthia: I’ve got some food here if you want some food.
Darrel: And what you’ve got?
Cynthia: Well, it’s some rice with the lemon Tahini sauce.
