FAQ

What does tahini paste taste like?

Tahini paste is a ground sesame butter, so it has a slightly bitter taste. Mixed with garlic, olive oil and maple syrup, it tastes delicious!

Why does my lemon tahini dressing thicken?

Your lemon tahini sauce will thicken over time because tahini is drawn to water. You can thin it with more water before using it each time.

What can I put lemon tahini sauce on?

You can enjoy this delicious sauce drizzled on a sweet potato buddha bowl, drizzle it on freshly roasted vegetables, or even use it as a pasta sauce!
