Tasty Tahini Cream Sauce

This is a very simple and quick tahini sauce to make.  The taste will vary depending on whether you have it sweet for porridge or a dessert or savory for on your grain or vegetables.


1/4 cup  Tahini (sesame butter)
1/4 – 1/2 cup Water (the reason there is such a variance in the water is that some tahini is thicker than others)

Additional possible Ingredients:

1 tsp Lemon juice
Sea salt to taste
2 drops light Stevia
1/2 tsp Braggs
Vege salt
1 clove garlic, finely chopped (optional)

Choose whether you want this sauce sweet of savory and which taste appeals to you.


  1. Blend all ingredients together with a fork.
  2. It will make a thick sauce.
  3. Add more water if you would like it thinner.
  4. Use on top of steamed vegetables or a grain like brown rice.

    This sounds wonderful and a good addition to the tahini dressing I’ve been making, especially now that I can’t find decent horseradish. In case you’re interested, the dressing I make is equal parts tahini, lemon juice and olive oil with horseradish (packed in lemon juice) to taste. Can be blended with a whisk or fork. It’s awesome on grains and steamed vegetables, but then I love horseradish 🙂

    Sue, that sounds very good! I like horseradish and it is not easy to find a made one with only the right ingredients in it. I am seriously thinking of grinding up my own like my father did.

    Ooh, don’t just grind your own, grow your own, your sinuses will love you! I think homegrown is so much better, if your climate cooperates and you have the room in your garden. When I lived in SE PA I’d dig the roots from my parents’ garden, grind up small batches, about 2 weeks’ worth, and firmly pack the ground horseradish in freshly-squeezed lemon juice so it wasn’t so acidic. Now I’m spoiled! I won’t buy prepared horseradish in a jar, too much unhealthy stuff that obscures the flavor, and too many chemicals. Good luck!

    Sue, that certainly is the way to go! I stopped buying horseradish a long time ago for the same reasons you don’t buy it.
    Wish I could taste yours as I am sure it is very good. Love to see a photo of it.

    Diana, wish I still made my own horseradish but I no longer have access to decent horseradish root, and I never took pictures when I did. Amazing how I took food for granted back when it was still real. The tahini sauce I make now, without horseradish, depends less on science (exact measurements) and more on instinct (?) and I’ll still sometimes use too much of an ingredient or mix it too much so it “breaks”, which wouldn’t look good in your restaurant but it still tastes wonderful in my meals on steamed vegetables and grains like quinoa or brown rice. I’ve recently discovered flavored olive oils and will be experimenting with those tastes, and thanks to your recipe for Creamy Tahini Dressing may even try adding a little water with the lemon juice to thin the sauce out sometimes. If it tastes good (and doesn’t kill me) then I got it right, but I only have myself to feed!
