I made a tahini-yoghurt sauce from the cookbook veggie burgers every which way by Lukas Volger. This was a double challenge for me because I don't make my own sauces that often and I am fairly new at it. I served this sauce as a topping on bean burgers and it tasted great.It has a really fresh flavor and is perfect for spring.
Tahini-yoghurt sauce (makes 1 1/4 cups - enough for 6 bean burgers)
- 3/4 cup Greek style plain yoghurt
- 1/2 cup tahini
- 2 tbsp minced fresh parsley
- 1 minced garlic clove
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp cumin
- some salt
Just combine all the ingredients and adjust seasonings if needed. That's it! I was surprised myself how easy it is to make your own sauce if you know what to combine. Additionally you can add a dash of hot sauce if you like a more spicy sauce.
For the burger I slapped some sauce on the bottom bun, just a spoonful and spread it. Then I put some lettuce and cucumber on there and the bean burger. Lastly I added more sauce on top before placing the top bun.
