Easy, versatile vegan tahini sauce that is wonderful drizzled over everything. It’s ready in minutes and can be used as a sauce, dressing or dip.


  • 1/2 cup (120g) Tahini*
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) Lemon Juice
  • 2 tsp Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 cup Water*


  1. Add all the ingredients to a measuring jug and whisk into a smooth sauce. If you’re unsure of the consistency that you would prefer, then add in the water slowly until you reach the consistency you like.
  2. Keep it stored in the refrigerator.


*Mix your tahini well before use. Sometimes the oil and the tahini paste separate in the jar so need a vigorous stirring before use.

*Use less water if you want a thicker sauce or if you want it to be a sour cream consistency. This amount of water results in a fairly thin, easily pourable sauce perfect for drizzling.
