Sesame Cream

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Vegetarian

 Ingredients List

  • 1 Garlic cloves -- crushed
  • 1/2 c Raw sesame tahini
  • 1/4 c Water
  • 1/3 c Lemon juice


The thicker sesame tahinis, which are preferable to the runnier ones,
usually have a layer of oil on top when you open the jar. Since the
objective is to reduce all fats, I pour this oil off rather than stirring
it back into the tahini, as is sometimes directed. The product doesn't
suffer in the least; it keeps just as well in this slightly drier form and
is just as tasty. Author of The American Vegetarian Cookbook (whose name
I can't remember)

This is not a sweet cream; it is savory. Use it in salad dressings and pita
sandwiches to replace mayonnaise, on burgers, in sauces where a little
savory cream is needed as a thickener and as a binder. Make a batch and
keep it in the refrigerator in a covered container.

Blend garlic, tahini, and water on high to turn into paste. Add lemon
juice, which will thin paste. Add more water to thicken to desired
consistency, then blend in desired seasonings.
