You can’t beat homemade tahini sauce! It’s fresh and lemony flavor will go a long way in your grain bowls, veggie platters, falafel, salads and so much more. Plus you know there are no additives!

  • 1 cup Rodelle Toasted Sesame Seeds ( for sesame paste)
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • ¾ cup and 4 tablespoons of luke-warm water
  • ¼ cup olive oil (any neutral flavored oil will work but olive oil recommended)
  • 2 small garlic cloves grated or pressed
  • ½ teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor/blender and blend on high speed until mixture is smooth and creamy like a paste. It shouldn’t be chunky or too grainy. This will take about 5-10 minutes of blending. If it’s too thick add more water, if too thin add more sesame seeds.



  • Tahini can be stored in an airtight container for 2-3 weeks in fridge.
  • If your tahini sauce is thick out of the fridge, let it soften/come to room temp or mix a bit of water with it. Certain oils can solidify in the fridge which is why it gets thicker OR the sesame seeds might have absorbed the liquids while in the fridge.
  • If you left the tahini sauce out and its separating, just give it a good stir and it should be good to use.
