Sagi's Top Secret Tahini

I am thrilled to share this delicious tahini recipe that my husband has been making for years now. It’s so easy and versatile, you will be making it over and over again with all the different flavors of tahini! Tahini is a staple in the Israeli’s kitchen because it can be used as an alternative sauce or drizzle on just about anything.
My favorite way to use tahini is to make a tangy lemon-tahini dressing for the veggies in my roasted cauliflower salad. You’ll love how creamy and smooth it tastes!

Are you ready?

Here we go:

What will you need?

200 gr. raw tahini

125ml. freshly squeezed lemon juice

100 ml. iced water (the low temperature is the secret to creating the perfect airy texture)


How to make it?

  1. Mix tahini with the lemon juice
  2. Add iced water
  3. Add salt according to your taste
  4. If you want to make extra fluffy tahini – use cold soda water instead of iced water
  5. ENJOY!!!!!

With a freshly cut Israeli salad, with falafel, with meat patties, or of course with Hummus!
Tahini is a great alternative to butter and olive oil for cooking, it tastes amazing on toast with some honey or jam. Not only that but you can put tahini in smoothies, dressings etc!
