This garlic tahini yogurt sauce, also known as tahina, is my go-to falafel sauce. It's quick and easy to make with only 4 ingredients.


  • 4 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp yogurt
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 1 tbsp lime juice (about half a lime)
  • 4 tbsp water (to start with)
  • Pinch of salt and pepper


  1. Using a garlic press or mortar and pestle, mash the garlic.
  2. Squeeze the lime over the garlic.
  3. Add the tahini sesame paste and yogurt to the same bowl. Mix well until a peanut butter consistency has formed.
  4. Add equal parts water (4 tbsp) for a thick falafel sauce. Double the water (total 8 tbsp) if you want a thin falafel sauce.


  1. Store the garlic tahini yogurt sauce in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  2. The nutrition facts are for a thick falafel sauce.
