Equipment

  • Hand Blender (a whisk does the trick too, if you are patient enough)

Ingredients
 
 

  • 15 g garlic minced or pressed
  • 120 g tahini white
  • 60 ml lemon juice
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 80 ml water

Instructions
 

  • If you have a hand blender, use a tall measuring cup to have a good blend. If you whisk, a deep round bowl is your friend.
  • Add all ingredients except the water to the container of choice and start mixing. Carefully add the water bit by bit until you have the desired consistency.
  • If you're not using the sauce right away, I recommend covering it and to store it in the fridge until needed.
  • From here, you can bend this sauce into many different styles. Try adding some sweetness from fruit or jams. Make a sauce with a different base, like peanut. Give it some beet root for both color and earthy aromas. The possibilities are infinite.
