Sesame sauce is a great green or salad dressing. It goes really well with spaghetti, bread/sandwich or veggies. In place of apple cider vinegar, you can also infuse the sauce with your favorite kombucha.
Let's see how to make it now:
- 150 grams roasted sesame seeds
- 150 grams olive oil
- 60 gr soy sauce
- 60 gr kombucha
- 30 gr honey
- 5 gr dried garlic
- Optional spices: cinnamon, pepper
Step 1: Soak the Sesame Seeds Overnight
For a great smell and taste, you can use roasted sesame seeds. For more nutritional value, wash and soak the seeds overnight.
When it's done, we can move on to step 2:
Step 2: Blend the Ingredients
In a blender, gradually add in the ingredients we have. Firstly, the soaked sesame seeds. Then, the olive oil at an equal amount with the seeds. For the oil, you can choose cold pressed olive oil, even better the first few presses for the best taste.
We then pour in our soy sauce next. This soy sauce ingredient is to balance the taste for our sauce. It's good to use aged fermented soy sauce. However if you haven't yet made it at home, look for organic safe sources.
To add that light acidic note to our sauce, we can use apple cider vinegar. If you don't have vinegar around, kombucha is another good option. Add the kombucha in as the same amount as the soy sauce.
Some folks like it a bit sweet. So for a sweeter taste in the sauce, you can add in natural sweeteners like honey, organic sugar or dates. If you're fine with it, you can omit these.
And lastly, to bring the flavor up a notch, add in some of your favorite spices. Dried garlic gives it a great smell. Dried hot chili pepper gives you some good heat. Alternatively, you can use cinnamon, pepper, etc. Here we'll add garlic, cinnamon and pepper.
Then.. we can close the lid and let it blend for about 40 seconds.
The Finished Sesame Sauce
After the blending is done, you'll see a light brown/beige color sauce in the blender. The sauce has a rich creamy texture. You can now grab a slice of bread or a carrot, have a dip and have a taste. It makes, say a quite bland raw veggie, tastes amazing. Plus the good microbes present, it is also good for gut health.
Storing the Sauce
You can store the sauce in a cooler and use up within the week. Remember to resist the temptation to dip directly into the sauce. It could make it go bad! Use a spoon to scoop out some and enjoy. It will be better for storage and your health.
