Firstly, you’ll need to let the cloves of garlic sit in the lemon juice for some time - approximately ten minutes, so as to let the lemon juice absorb the flavor that garlic brings with itself.
Next, you’ll have to strain this mixture into a larger bowl once it has been sitting for some time. Here, attempt to squeeze the garlic for its juice as much as possible.
Once this is done, add your Tahini, cumin, and salt to the larger bowl that has the lemon and garlic mixture. To combine all these ingredients, you’ll need to whisk them together.
While you’re whisking this mixture, continue adding a couple of tablespoons of water every now and then to make the mixture smoother. Once you have put in six tablespoons of water, the mixture may have become perfectly smooth and resembling a creamy Tahini sauce.
And with that, you’re done with your very own homemade Tahini sauce. You can then go on to use this sauce as a dip with veggies or some pita bread, or you can attempt to make the sauce even lighter by continuing to add water if you’re considering adding this vegan Tahini sauce to your salad as a dressing.
Additionally, you can also choose to add more lemon juice if you like your Tahini sauce to be tangier - it all depends on what your taste buds prefer.
