I don’t know about you, but my body has been craving something besides cookies, and desserts. Don’t get me wrong, I have enjoyed all the Christmas goodies, but this girl needs to get back on track. I’m all about balance when it comes to diet and exercise, but let’s face it, that’s harder to do when you throw all the extra things that come along with the holiday season!!

This delicious green tahini sauce is a wonderful addition to most grain bowls (and tacos too!). It’s so easy to make. Just put all the ingredients in a food processor and blend…that’s it!! C’mon, it doesn’t get any easier than that!

This recipe makes enough for four grain bowls. Enjoy!!

 Ingredients:

  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (45 grams)
  • 3/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (20 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon agave or honey
  • 1 cup tahini (230 grams)
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (61 grams)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • *Water

 

Directions:

Add all of the ingredients in a food processor and pulse several times until combined. Scrape down the sides of the processor bowl. Continue to blend until the sauce is smooth and creamy.  *Drizzle in 1/4 – 1/2 cup water into the food processor until your sauce reaches your desired consistency.

Soooo easy!!

    1. Hi Deena, I’m so happy you are going to make this! This will keep well, covered and refrigerated, up to a week. If it gets too thick you can whisk in some more water before serving. Enjoy!

  1. OK… I’m really not a junk food person or a healthy food person. I fit somewhere in the middle and don’t want to spend too much thought on which way I lean. I may find myself stepping into disappointment. I feel that with my following question, i;ll be giving myself away but here goes… What is a “Grain Bowl’?

    1. Haha!! I get where you’re coming from😉! I recently had a grain bowl at Panera and it was so good! Of course I immediately did my research so I could make my own☺️. It’s basically a meal in bowl with some sort of grain as the base ingredient. I will be posting more sauces and “bowl” ideas. They really are quite good😋

      1. I don’t think the cuisine had made it north of the border yet. I’ll have a look-see later. Thanks for your quick response… And for continuing to read my sporadic posts.
