Recipe for Sweet Tahini Sauce
The tahini sauce is sweet and savoury at the same time. Since tahini is a sesame paste that has a strong savoury flavour, it can sometimes taste bitter if eaten alone. However, when mixed with a sweetener like maple syrup or agave with a little lemon, the bitterness completely goes away and you are just left with a perfect combination of savoury and sweet tahini sauce.
This is my go-to tahini dressing that I put on… everything!
