Introduction

Use this on falafel or a salad. Add fresh or dried herbs and it becomes goddess dressing. The toasted sesame oil imparts a stronger sesame flavor to the dressing. Use this on falafel or a salad.

Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1/2 cup tahini
    3 lemons, juiced and zested
    1 T toasted sesame oil
    1/4 cup chopped parsley
    2 scallions, chopped
    1 large clove garlic, minced
    1 t sriracha (hot sauce--optional)
    up to 1/2 cup water
    salt and pepper to taste

Tips

Try this with my baked falafel.
If you don't have tahini, grind 1/2 cup raw white sesame seeds in a blender with a couple of tablespoons of water at a time until you reach a pourable consistency.


Directions

Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until smooth, adding water one tablespoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency.

Each serving is one tablespoon.

    Tahini is sesame seed butter. Along with olive oil, garlic, and lemon, tahini is a prime ingredient in hummous (garbanzo bean dip) and baba ghanouzh (roasted eggplant dip). This recipe sounds great and I will be making it as soon as I can. - 3/19/12

    adding water to the sesame seeds when you blend them will change the consistancy of the dressing and make the resulting sauce more vulnerable to spoilage if you have left overs.

    Really tasty! I made this with the falafel as recommended and, also didn't bother with a food processor. Might add other seasonings and a little more water or lemon juice in the future to make it a little thinner & lower calorie. - 3/28/12
