2 garlic cloves
½ C (125 ml) tahini paste
¼ – ½ C (60 – 125 ml) water
¼ – ½ C (60 – 125 ml) lemon juice
2 Tbsp (30 ml) parsley, chopped
toasted sesame seeds to garnish

Crush the garlic cloves with salt until smooth.

Combine the tahini paste with the garlic paste gradually, working and mixing to incorporate the two.

Add a little water, alternating with lemon juice. The sauce will become thicker as the water is added and will thin out with lemon. Continue until the desired thickness is achieved. Add the parsley and mix to combine.    

Transfer to a serving dish, drizzle with lemon juice and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
