Instant Tomato Tachina Wondersauce

This is just about the simplest pasta sauce I will ever be seen to use. It's also good as a dipping sauce, sandwich spread, barbeque sauce... you name it :D Now I just need to figure out if my virus-ridden throat is up to trying pasta, yet   x_x

Tomato Tachina Wondersauce

Cooking time: ~2 minutes

  • 2 tbsp organic tachina/tahini (pure sesame seed paste; non-organice can be used but it just doesn't taste the same)
  • 2 tbsp tomato sauce (American: ketchup)
  • a few drops of lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • optional: zaatar
  1. Mix the tachina with about an equal amount of water, preferably near-boiling. Cold water will work, but you'll be stirring for a while and cursing as you do.  It should come to the consistency of a creamy sauce. Too thin? Add more tachina. Too thick? Add more water! Remember to increase the other ingredients to match the rough final amount of tachina.
  2. Add the tomato sauce, lemon juice, and garlic. Mix vigorously.
  3. Optional: If you're feeling zesty, throw in a few pinches of zaatar, or just use it as a dusting over the top.
And that's it! Done! I tend to mix mine in with freshly cooked pasta for a simple meal when I can't be bothered with any elaborate cooking procedures. Boil pasta, mix tachina, eat ^_^

Leftover sauce can be stored in the fridge in a sealed container for a few days.
