I have been making a version of this tahini sauce for the last few years now, and finally decided it was time to share it with you. Because well…it’s too good not to share.

I love this sauce because it goes excellent on a salad, but my absolute favorite way to enjoy it is to drizzle it over grain-bowls. I’ve mentioned it before but grain-bowls consist of…

  • a grain (quinoa, brown rice, millet, etc.)
  • a protein (tofu, seitan, lentils, beans, etc.)
  • all kinds of veggies
  • other greens (kale, spinach, chard, etc.)

Throw all together in a bowl, and add some of this sauce and I promise you’ll be thinking up new ways you can get creative. To me, this tahini sauce is a staple recipe. My fridge always has a jar of tahini somewhere in there and 90% of the time, I’m using it to make this sauce.

To prepare, combine all ingredients and stir with a whisk. Just be aware that this sauce will thicken as it sits, so add more warm water to thin.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. =)
