Here’s a lighter yet still indulgently creamy sauce to use for all of your Mediterranean uses, including with your Tracy’s Real Foods Oil-Free Crispy Herbed Falafel! You’ll be amazed! The zucchini creates a great base for this sauce and replaces most of the water. You get bonus nutrition (and minimal extra calories) from the zucchini! I change up the "salty" component almost every time, because it basically creates a totally different flavor each time I make it.
Creamy Trāhini Sauce
½ cup sesame tahini

3 cloves garlic
¼ cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (optional)
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (optional)
