A good sauce recipe can save any meal! (Don’t quote me on that though, I’ve seen some of the meals my mom makes and they just aren’t save-able!) Just kidding 🙂
She does say that we could each follow the same recipe but somehow mine would turn out better.
This tahini sauce is different from your typical meatball-spaghetti combination. It has a creamier texture with more flavor for an added pop and pairs perfectly with my Sesame Meatballs (pictured above).
Since my sesame meatballs are made with lean turkey meat, they also have this lighter texture which is why this creamy sauce harmonizes well with it.
Tahini, which is made from sesame seeds, might not necessarily be on your radar, however I highly recommend having it as a staple in your pantry.
It has this ‘nutty’ flavor to it. As far as the texture of it, think of combining natural peanut butter with hummus. I know that sounds kind of gross but that’s what it feels like texture wise.
It’s great to dip veggies in, flavor your falafels, add to salads, or thicken up dressing recipes such as this one!
This sauce is versatile which is nice. Simply change the thickness of it by adding more or less water.
Before you make this though…
This is an antioxidant that helps prevent our body from getting sick by tackling free radicals, which damage our immune system.
The fat from tahini is known as monounsaturated fat which has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.
This vitamin aids in energy production, which keeps us going through the day!
