Hey guys, welcome back to Dede’s Mediterranean Kitchen. Today, I’m going to be making Tahini Sauce. This is the sauce that I made out of tahini that’s served with falafels, served with shawarma. It’s served with fish. It’s served with a lot of the Mediterranean dishes. It’s really easy and I’m going to show you how to make it.
Now remember, you can get this recipe and all of my other recipes at www.DedeMed.com. Now, if you don’t have tahini at your local grocery stores, you can also buy that on my website on my store page.
Now, the recipe I’m making is enough for four people. What we’re going to start off with is two cloves of minced garlic. I like mincing my garlic with a little bit of salt. I'm going to add a third cup of lemon juice or lemon from two lemons. I’m going to add half a cup of tahini. Now, make sure you stir the tahini before you add it because sometimes, it gets thick on the bottom because it is a paste and the oils come to the top, so make sure you get a little bit of a stir before adding. So we’re going to add about half a cup. And then, we’re going whisk it with a whisk. Now, some people like to add radish. I add radishes sometimes, sometimes I don’t. It just depends on if it’s available or if it’s not. Some people don’t like them at all. You’re also going to add water.
As you’re mixing it, the lemon juice and the tahini react and it becomes very thick. So you’re going to want to add water. Water thins it out. Now remember, some people like their tahini sauce really thick and some people like it a little bit more watery. So there we go and you will see, it will get almost white. I like my sauce a little bit more thicker. I don’t like it too watery, so I added about a fourth cup of water. Just mix it up and look at that, see? It’s nice and thick.
Now, we’re going to add about a teaspoon of freshly chopped parsley. It adds a nice element to the dish and a nice color, and that’s it! You have your tahini sauce. It’s so easy to make. It’s easy to serve. It goes great with pretty much anything that you’re making. You can be creative and try it with different dishes. Some people even add it to salads. There’s a dressing—I think there’s a dressing that has tahini in it, so you can even serve this on a salad.
Just finish garnishing this with some freshly chopped green onion, just like that, and you can serve this, great with your meal.
