I've made this countless times and have never been disappointed. I've used homemade tahini and store bought organic tahini and it works out great either way. I now add roasted garlic vs fresh garlic (I use roasted garlic for my hummus as well) and add a bit of cumin to the tahini in addition to the crushed red pepper. So delicious! Thanks for sharing.
We enjoyed this sauce with our baked falafels I made for dinner. Thanks so much for posting.
This was great! I used mine as a dressing for falafel sandwiches on pita, which I love. The flavor was perfect and exactly what I hoped for. Thanks for sharing! ~Sue
