herb tahini sauce

herb tahini sauce Categories: Appetizer|Appetizers|Salad
Nb persons: 8
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Total time: 15 minutes

    1 cup  tahini sesame seed paste, I prefer the paste made from light colored seeds
    3/4 cup  lukewarm water, use more or less for desired consistency
    5 cloves  roasted garlic
    1/2 cup  fresh parsley, roughly chopped
    1/4 cup  fresh dill, roughly chopped
    1/4 cup  fresh lemon juice, or more to taste
    1/4 cup  fresh lime juice, or more to taste
    1/2 tsp  salt, or more to taste

You will also need: blender or food processor

Combine tahini paste, lukewarm water, roasted garlic, parsley, dill, lemon juice, lime juice and salt together in a food processor.

Blend or process, scraping sides periodically, until sauce is creamy and well blended. If using a blender, you may need to pause blending and use a long-handled spoon or spatula to break up the thick part of the sauce once every 20-30 seconds; this will keep it from clogging your blender blades.

After a few minutes of blending, sauce will turn into a rich, smooth paste. If mixture is too thick, slowly add more water until it reaches the preferred consistency. You may need quite a bit of water depending on the thickness of your tahini paste. Or you may choose to keep the sauce quite thick, rich and whipped. It's totally a preference thing.

If using tahini to top hummus or a meat dish, keep it thick and creamy. As a condiment for pita or falafel, a more liquid sauce is usually preferred. Taste often during the blending process; add more lemon juice or salt, if desired.
