DIRECTIONS

  • If you are opening a jar of tahini, stir to blend the two layers before measuring it.
  • Stir it slowly to avoid splashing.
  • Refrigerate what’s left in the jar and it will stay blended.
  • Spoon the tahini paste into a medium bowl.
  • Slowly whisk in ¾ cup water.
  • Add the salt, lemon juice, garlic, cayenne and cumin.
  • Taste and add more salt, lemon juice and cayenne if you like.
  • If the sauce is too thick, stir in more water, 1 tablespoon at a time.
  • Serve cool or at room temperature.
  • You can make this in the blender.
  • This is quicker, but I find washing a bowl and whisk easer than washing a blender.
  • The Tupperware shaker also is a good tool, my Tupperware lady demonstrated her shaker making tehina, and I just had to have it!
