Cilantro & Cayenne Tahini Sauce

I am dedicating a whole post today to this amazingly awesome super delicious GREEN tahini sauce. Because it’s amazing.

Like, put it on everything and then lick the plate when you’re done amazing.

Yup, that kind. I made this to top off some roasted veggie pita wraps that I’ll be sharing next week. I’m not sure whether to call them wrapstacos, or just pitas – it’s like an open-faced sandwich you fold in half like a taco. But I feel like you just can’t call a pita-thing a taco. It’s just wrong. But whatever you call them, they were SO GOOD mostly, I think, to this sauce.

And maybe a little bit due to the spicy chickpeas.

But that’s for next week! Because today, all I want to do is tell you how to make this amazing cilantro and cayenne tahini sauce.

And honestly, there’s not much to tell you. Put all ingredients in a blender and press go!

But really, that’s all there is to it.

And then when you’re done, put it on top of everything – pita sandwiches (duh), salads, grain bowls (also coming soon!), stir frys, etc.

Now go get to saucin’!


This great tahini sauce recipe has cilantro and cayenne for maximum deliciousness! It’s perfect on veggie wraps, grain bowls, or as a dressing.
