5-Ingredient Tahini Sauce (Asian)

Last Updated on February 14, 2021

It’s easier to incorporate a long list of ingredients to make food tasty as opposed to using minimum amount of ingredients to make something yummy. Good news! This Asian flavor tahini sauce is super quick, easy, and so award winning!  It still tastes great without using common Asian ingredients like garlic or ginger. That means no chopping and grating! It only takes 5 ingredients to make the sauce. Wish everything was like that.

It has a subtle Japanese taste from the soy sauce that compliments the richness of the tahini. This sauce works great with ingredients that are minimally processed in cooking such as raw veggies or steamed/boiled veggies. See our Spinach with Tahini Sauce .

So when you’re having one of those late hungry nights that you know you shouldn’t eat, this is the dish for you. We promise you will not feel guilty in the morning. Now have fun and enjoy!!
