Tahini Sauce Recipe from Cyprus

1 clove of garlic
1/2 cup of water or more if needed
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste


Put the tahini paste,lemon juice, garlic and water in a bowl and use a blender or food processor to mix well for a minute or so. If needed add more water or lemon, it should be runny enough to easily drop off a spoon.

Add the olive oil and taste as you add the seasoning

Serve with toasted pita bread, or with any vegetables

* Using hot water in the food processor helps to loosen the tahini paste if it is thick, and lemon juice thickens the sauce.
