About this recipe

Four simple ingredients and tahini are all you need to make a scrumptious tahini sauce. So light and easy to eat, this tahini sauce is a savoury and dairy-free alternative for vegans. Tahini is made from sesame paste, which is basically crushed sesame seeds.

Here’s the most authentic tahini recipe you will come across:

tahini sauce in a shallow bowl


  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • ½ cup tahini hulled
  • 3-4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • salt to season
  • ½ cup cold water (it may be less or more – see Cook’s note)

Notes from Rouba

  • Keep in mind that the quality of tahini can vary with different brands so it’s best to add the water gradually.
  • Hulled or Unhulled Tahini – What’s the difference?


Step 1.

Place tahini, lemon juice, and crushed garlic into a bowl. Whisk while adding 1 tablespoon of water at a time until creamy and smooth. The consistency should be creamy and pourable similar to thickened cream before whipping. You may add more or less water than what’s specified above. Season with salt.
