Tahini sauce (Salatet tahina)


Tahini sauce is made from tahini - a sesame seed paste. Tahini sauce is thinner and used in pita sandwiches, marinades, and dips. Tahini sauce is very easy to make. Store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator and it will keep for about two weeks.

Ingredients (serves 8)

1 clove garlic, crushed
150g tahini paste
2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
Paprika, to serve

Method
1. Combine garlic, tahini and vinegar in a bowl, then whisk in lemon juice and 125ml (1/2 cup) cold water to form a creamy sauce. Stir in cumin and parsley. Season. Spoon into a bowl and sprinkle with paprika.
