  • 150 grams tahini paste
  • 1 lemon - the juice
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 cup water or more if a more runny consistency is preferred
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Put the tahini paste, lemon juice, garlic and water in a bowl and use a blender or food processor and mix well.
  • Check the flavor and the consistency – it should be runny enough to easily drop off a spoon
  • Add more lemon if required (as well as adding flavor, this will thicken the sauce)
  • Add more water if the consistency is not as creamy and runny as required – this will make the sauce runnier
  • Add the olive oil
  • Taste as you add the seasoning
  • Serve with toasted pita bread at the beginning of the meze
