A favourite way to amp up the flavour of some classic dishes like stir-frys is this Lemon Tahini Sauce. Tahini is the paste of sesame seeds and provides a bit of a nutty flavour. For every 2 tbsp of tahini, it contributes:
7 grams of protein
3 grams of fibre and
15% of your daily recommended iron!
Pairing it with the citrusy lemon juice and some savoury garlic makes this sauce a powerhouse of a condiment. Enjoy this on a tofu scramble, shrimp salad, vegetable sides or your favourite sandwich or burger!
In a small bowl, mason jar or mug whisk together the tahini, lemon juice and garlic.
The lemon juice will quickly thicken the tahini so wait until you are ready to serve the sauce to thin it out with water. Start by adding 1 tbsp of the water and whisking again, followed by 1 tsp at a time until you have reached the desired consistency.
Add a dash of salt and serve on top of your chosen dish or alongside it for individual portioning.
