Introduction

I love this recipe! It can be used as a sauce for grilled meats, a dressing for salads or steamed vegetables, or as a marinade for tofu or other lean proteins. You will always find it in my refrigerator.

Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
    1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
    1 tablespoon tahini*
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 tablespoons fresh ginger, chopped
    1 lemon, zested and juiced
    1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
    1/4 cup olive oil

    * Tahini, a paste made from sesame seeds, can be found in the Mediterranean or Middle Eastern foods aisle of your supermarket.

Tips

No tahini? Use no salt added natural peanut butter instead.

Tahini is a paste made from sesame seeds. You can swap another nut butter in a pinch.

Try marinading boneless chicken in the sauce for a great weeknight supper. Marinate the chicken overnight and you'll get supper on the table in less than 30 minutes. Add on some heat-and-eat (or made-ahead) brown rice, a serving or two of frozen mixed stir-fry vegetables, and a cup of milk, and dinner is served!

This sauce will keep in the refrigerator for 2 weeks.


Directions

Combine all ingredients except olive oil in a mixing bowl. Slowly whisk in the olive oil.
Makes 3/4 cup, 1 tablespoon per serving

    This sause is delicious, the tahini gives it an authentic flavor...
    @KJARD1-tahini is a paste made from sesame seeds. You can purchase it at and ethnic food store or make it at home using some olive oil and sesame seeds. You just grind them adding a little oil as you need till it makes a paste.

    I really like this sauce, though I had to go to Whole Foods to find Tahini as our grocery selection is pretty limited. Since I cook for one, I portioned out the marinade and froze it in small containers. It thaws and tastes just as good as freshly-made. Used on fish and chicken..very good! - 4/10/12

    Excellent multi-purpose sauce. My son loves it over everything; I add a couple Tbsp. along with a shot of Bragg's Aminos to water for cooking whole grains for yummy pilaf. Possibilities are endless. - 3/16/11

    This was absolutely scrumptious. I added extra garlic (I'm a garlic lover) and used it as a sauce to cook chicken thighs. Everyone loved it. You might think this would be too spicy from the ingredients but the tahini and the olive oil offset the heat of the ginger and peppers for a tasty result. - 7/19/11
