Michael Schwartz's Tahini Sauce

1 cup

This sesame seed-based sauce from Michael's Genuine Food & Drink chef Michael Schwartz is a refreshing accompaniment to his Falafel.


  • ½ cup tahini (sesame seed paste)

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • Juice of 1 lemon

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • Pinch of coarse salt


  1. Place all ingredients in the jar of a blender along with 1/2 cup water. Blend on high until smooth and creamy. If sauce gets too thick as it sits, stir in a little more water or lemon juice to thin out.
