Creamy Sesame Tahini & Ginger Sauce

Homemade spice blends and sauces pack a LOT of flavor and health benefits WITHOUT adding processed oils, sugar, or flavoring. They can literally “spice up” your meals.
This sauce was inspired by my Dad, who LOVES cold peanut noodles, and my mom, who LOVES ginger, garlic, and just about anything with onions.
Here are a few reasons why I love this sauce:
  • Apple cider vinegar may have the ability to aid in digestion, joint pain, skin blemishes, sinus problems, along with so many other self reported benefits including providing dietary probiotic content. 
  • Sesame tahini is pureed sesame seeds. Tahini has quality fat, protein, and minerals that have been shown to lower blood pressure, prevent cancer, help burn fat, and balance hormones!
  • Garlic and onions are part of the ALLIUM family of plants, which can lower inflammation and have been shown to have some cancer fighting properties.


  • 1 1/2 cups tahini
  • 1 cup water (add more as needed)
  • 1/3 cup coconut aminos – this is a gluten free, soy free swap for soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 small shallots or 1/4 cup chopped minced real sweet onion
  • 3 tbsp fresh ginger, grated (or substitute 1 tbsp dried ginger)
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • Additional sesame seeds, scallions, red pepper flakes to garnish, if desired


  • Mix all ingredients in a blender or food processor. It’s as easy as that!!
  • If it’s too thick, add water by the tbsp until sauce becomes smooth and creamy.
  • Serve with veggies, chicken, or noodles.
  • Store in refrigerator for up to 7 days. You can also freeze up to 3 months in reusable bags for use when you are ready.
