Dumb question: what is it? It sounds like some sort of sauce you're using on sandwiches...

Sesame seed paste. Like peanut butter from sesame seeds, basically. It's usually mixed with lemon juice and other things to make the sauce. Excellent with falafel.

I love sesame oil; bet I'd like tahini too then. More grocery shopping! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

Can someone give a recipe for tahini sauce that one would put on falafel? Igot some tahini not so long ago, and I was hoping to put it on my falafel. It's not so good on its own, and it's been itting in the cupboard for a month.<br><br><br><br>
So if anyone has any good ideas for tahini, post them here. I don't want that jar to go to waste!

Great Falafel recipes and Tahini and other sauces from Deb!<br><br>
I love Falafel#1 (I meant to put 1/3 cup potato flakes and 2/3 cup water in the post) and the Tahini Sauce. I had one of these today and I thought about you, Loki. Try it, you will love it and then you will have to buy more tahini <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Shannon

loki: here is the recipe i use. got it off the bottle.<br><br><br><br>
1/4 cup tahini<br><br>
3 cloves fresh garlic<br><br>
1/8 - 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon/lime juice<br><br>
water to dilute to desired consistency<br><br>
sea salt to taste<br><br><br><br>
mix till all ingredients combined.<br><br><br><br>
mmm! i love tahini!<br><br><br><br>
good uses? well, i use it as a spread for breads, it lends a very succulent creamyness to cooked foods, good for dipping raw veggies in, kick arse with falafel, hummus and tabouli, i've experimented with making sauces with it....well, i only have ONE sauce to my name, heh. anything else? no, thats all i've used it for.

sunnyk, tahini is a lot like peanut butter and didn't you say that you didn't like peanut butter?<br><br><br><br>
it is good in things, though...like hummus.

I use it in hummus, and in falafel sauce. It also usually ends up in my hot peanut sauce.<br><br><br><br>
Hummus: chickpeas, tahini, garlic, cumin & lemon juice. Throw it all in the blender & smoosh it. A very good food!<br><br><br><br>
Sauce: mix with water, lemon juice & garlic. If using blender (which you don't have to) then it will be frothy. I put in some chopped parsley if I have it.

Hmmm, good point, mushroom. Geez, I'm still tempted to try it, but who will I give it to if it's too peanut-buttery?<br><br><br><br>
*Munches handful of peanuts, rolls eyes at own strange vegan tastes*<br><br><br><br>
I've got some hummus, falafel, and tabouli mixes in the cupboard that I'm intending to try soon. It's been so long since I had any of them. I didn't really like them before (except for once this really amazing tabouli that I found in a hole-in-the-wall in Paris by pure dumb luck). But maybe my tastes have changed by now ... I hope so or I'm going to be an even WEIRDER vegan who apparently doesn't like anything! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">
