Need a bright spot to power through these final winter months? This Easy Creamy Vegan Tahini Sauce is it! It’s creamy, it’s easy, it’s delicious and it’s super versatile. The sesame from the tahini brings a nutty warmth, while the lemon juice balances it with brightness and the pure maple syrup adds just the right amount of sweetness. This sauce can be used as a dressing on salad or a dip for raw or roasted veggies.  It can also be added to soups or pasta sauces as a flavorful way to thicken things up. The possibilities are truly endless as this can go from savory to sweet!

Making this recipe is super easy. Even better, no major kitchen appliances are needed, so this condiment-alternative is truly effortless. Plus, easy clean-up is always a plus! Simply put all the ingredients into a bowl and whisk together until smooth and creamy.

What is tahini?

Tahini, sometimes called Mediterranean peanut butter, is made from sesame seeds ground together into a paste. I encourage you to make this a new staple in your pantry because it’s packed with a surprising amount of nutrients! It’s a great source of fiber, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, iron, calcium, plant-based protein, and has vitamin B and antioxidants galore. 

Lately I have been loving the Whole Foods 365 brand of organic tahini.  As soon as I open a new jar I stir the oils well to fully incorporate them throughout the jar.  I also give it a good stir before each use.  This helps to prevent it from hardening at the bottom overtime.  For this recipe (and most recipes that use tahini) you want the tahini to be runny (but not over oily) so stirring it vigorously each time is so important to maintaining good texture throughout the entire jar.

With protein and fiber, this tahini sauce is a great way to add both a punch of flavor and some good nutrient boosts to your meals and snacks.  This recipe makes a good sized batch and I don’t typically use it all in one meal with our family.  To keep leftovers fresh, store in an airtight small container in your refrigerator for up to five days.  The sauce will thicken up quite a bit after being stored so you may need to add filtered water to it and whisk well before using again.  Bringing the sauce to room temperature in advance of using it also helps.
