Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 garlic cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
135g tahini
125ml lemon juice

Method

  1. Crush the garlic cloves with the salt in a mixing bowl. Gradually add the tahini and beat well with a wooden spoon.
  2. Beat in a little water and lemon juice alternately. The water thickens the mixture, and the lemon juice thins it. Add all the lemon juice and enough water to give the desired consistency, thick or thin, depending on its intended use; you will need about 60–125 ml water in total.
  3. Add more salt to taste; the sauce should be tart in flavour. Use as directed in recipes.

Note

  • If using a food processor or blender, blend or process the tahini and garlic for a few seconds to crush the garlic. Add the lemon juice and water alternately, a little at a time, until the desired consistency is reached. Blend in salt to taste.
