Green Tahini! Nutty, herby, garlicky, vegan, and extremely versatile. Just six ingredients and amazing with roasted veggies, chicken, or grains.



  • 1/2 cup olive oil (mild tasting)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • a big bunch of both cilantro and parsley
  • 1 clove garlic
  • squeeze of half a lemon (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (more to taste – I like salt 🙂 so ~1 teaspoon is what I use)


  1. Blend up all your sauce ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. Taste and adjust. If the sauce is too runny, add a little more tahini.
  2. Pour over roasted vegetables, beans, grains, protein… anything that needs to be woken up with some rich and creamy flavor!
