This fun, herbaceous sauce goes perfectly with all of my favorite dishes. It's an Herbed Tahini Sauce that's light, refreshing, and minty! Serve it with roasted veggies, falafel, or anything Greek. I know you'll love it!
I really love having a good sauce recipe. This Herbed Tahini Sauce takes ordinary dishes up a couple notches and it's versatile enough to use as a salad dressing, a dip for chips or veggies, or drizzled over roasted veggies and bowls. You could even add it to sandwiches or tacos for an extra burst of flavor! It blends into a light minty green color that totally brightens any dish. I love that you can make it a bit thinner for drizzling, or use less water for a thicker dip or sauce.
What is Tahini?
If you're unfamiliar with tahini then you're in for a real treat! Tahini is a sauce made from toasted and ground sesame. Since it's a seed base, it is super allergy friendly! Tahini is a main ingredient in many hummus and baba ghanoush recipes. Because of the nutty taste, you can use tahini as a substitute in many recipes that usually call for nuts (like my Vegan Almond Butter Cups!). Tahini is made from ground up sesame seeds which offer protein, omega-3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids, B vitamins, iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, zinc and more. This is an absolutely delicious way to add some wonderful nutrients into your meal!
