Though some people only use tzatziki sauce on falafels, I must have tahini sauce on it too. I use more tahini sauce than tzatziki sauce on my falafels. Folks who have had my falafels wraps, sandwiches, or salads say they are among the best they have ever had. These things are full of fiber and so filling too.
Tahini is a sesame paste. Sesames are seeds, often roasted, that have a number of health benefits. They contain natural oils, organic compounds, and a nutrient profile, including calcium, copper, folate, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, and more! These provide a broad range of health benefits to the body, among which are lowering blood pressure and preventing diabetes and certain cancers (Read about these for yourself in the article from Organic Facts).
Before I share the recipe, I must relate that a plant-based diet is not only connected to physical health, but also to spiritual health. It was God at Creation that gave us our diet (See Genesis 1:28-29 KJV). These at first consisted of seeds, nuts, fruits, grains, and then vegetables (See Genesis 3:17-19 KJV). With diseases teeming everywhere in these final days of earth’s history, God has given us just what we need in His Word to have a balanced mind and body to serve and give Him glory (See Proverbs 3:1-4; 1 Corinthians 10:31 KJV). My prayer is that we will heed these principles and commands before it is too late.
Well, without further ado, here’s the recipe.
- 1/2 cup tahini
- 3 gloves garlic, crushed
- 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 teaspoon finely diced fresh parsley, optional
Crush cloves of garlic in to a food processor or blender, then combine with tahini. Next, add kosher salt and combine again. You may remove this from the blender/food processor or keep it in there and add olive oil, lemon juice, and water (warm water if not using kangen water). Store as you would salad dressing. Be sure to refrigerate.
Note: Please stir tahini before using. I also add a bit of olive oil to coat my measuring cup before pouring the extremely sticky tahini in it so that clean up is a breeze.
