Tahini Sauce

This is a very simple tahini sauce made exactly how I like it, smooth and creamy!   There are so many ways to use tahini sauce; like on falafel, sandwiches, as a dip for veggies and toasted pita.  It is also used in dips like hummus and Baba ghannouj.

Tahini

 I absolutely love a simple tahini sauce like this one.  Some people use parsley, which is also good, but I prefer it smooth and creamy.  I make falafels often and I can never seem to get enough tahini sauce, because I like them saucy.
