Creamy Dreamy Tahini Sauce

Creamy Tahini Sauce/

Oh, this sauce is sooo good. I think, I found my new “it” sauce. Smooth tahini gives is that creamy mouthful, fresh lemon juice and miso paste add the tang and a medjool date a hint of sweetness. What more can I say: try it on everything!

Makes approx. ¾ cup

Prep Time : 10 minutes   Cook Time: 0 minutes


¼ cup water

¼  cup white balsamic vinegar

¼ cup tahini

2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

1 medjool date, pitted

1 tsp. white mellow miso paste



  • Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender. Blend at high-speed until all ingredients are well integrated and sauce is smooth and creamy.
  • Adjust liquids to taste.


If you are using a regular blender, you may need to soak date in hot water for 20-30 minutes to achieve smooth consistency.

Use a high quality white vinegar; it makes a huge difference in taste.

Use this sauce as a mayonnaise substitute in salads and as a spread.


This sauce  was inspired by a recipe in one of my favorite cookbooks: The PlantPure Nation Cookbook, by Kim Campbell.
