5 Minute Tahini Sauce

5 Minute Tahini Sauce

Hungry and with little time to spend in the kitchen – this 5 minute tahini sauce is born! It’s so easy to make, most ingredients you probably already have and you can substitute the ones you are missing. I am huge fan of homemade sauces, this way you have control over the quality of each ingredient.

I made this tahini sauce to go on top of my cauliflower wings and it totally hit the spot. You can also use it over rice or steamed vegetables or as a dipping sauce for sweet potato fries. The options are endless.

Second main ingredient is miso paste – if this is not a staple in your house – I highly suggest you start to experiment with it – it will change your life, I promise! I am a gluten-tard (gluten-free) so I buy the gluten-free miso paste, but I am told the taste is the same as the regular version.

OK let’s dive in and I hope you enjoy this 5 minute tahini sauce as much as I have!

Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It’s about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.
