May Recipe: Gigi’s Famous Tahini Sauce
This yummy and versatile recipe can be used as a delicious topping for veggie burgers, as a dip with vegetables, cooked with eggplant, and more. Make a batch and see for yourself!
1 cup (250 ml) tahini paste
1 cup (250 ml) boiling water (also ice water can be used, make sure the water is very cold we are trying to shock the sesame seeds to open)
1/2 cup (125 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 tsp (2 ml) sea salt
chopped parsley for garnish
Using a food processor, mix all the ingredients together until smooth. The boiling water will soften the tahini paste and create a creamier sauce. Garnish with a sprinkle of paprika and a drizzle of first press olive oil and enjoy!
