  • 150 g tahini paste
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 100 ml cold water
  • Pinch sea salt optional*


  • Stir the jar of tahini paste before starting.
  • Place 150g tahini paste, 1 clove crushed garlic and the juice of a lemon into a small mixing bowl.
  • Mix with a fork until combined. Slowly pour in the cold water, stirring with the fork all the time. It will look like it’s about to curdle but don’t worry - keep going and it’ll soon turn smooth.
  • The sauce will thicken if you leave it so you may need to add some extra water before serving if making in advance.
  • Season with salt if required.


*For babies leave out the salt - you could also leave out the garlic if you preferred.
