Rich, savory, creamy and lemony, this 100% raw tahini sauce delivers flavor, nutrients and a healthy twist on regular toasted sesame seeds. Sesame seed is a great source of protein, minerals and essential fatty acids. The secret is to use the highest quality raw tahini paste or better yet, make your own by using the directions bellow.
1 cup raw organic tahini*
1 cup spring or filtered water
1 teaspoon Celtic salt
1/3 cup chopped organic parsley leaves
2 tablespoons fresh chopped organic dill leaves
1 organic garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons organic fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon organic apple cider vinegar
Blend everything but the parsley and dill leaves in a high speed blender (like Vitamix) until the sauce is smooth. Add more water if necessary. Taste and adjust if needed. Add the chopped parsley and dill. Serve with crudités** or raw crackers.
* homemade raw tahini
1 cup raw organic sesame seeds (soaked for 8 hours and rinsed)
1/2 cup raw, cold pressed, organic sesame seed oil
Blend in a high speed blender (like Vitamix) for 2 minutes, stopping to scrape down once in awhile. Refrigerate for up to 3 weeks in a covered glass container.
** crudités (from the Latin crudus for raw) are raw vegetable appetizers such as celery , carrot, cucumber sticks and bell pepper strips, broccoli, cauliflower, fennel, and asparagus spears.
