Add everything but the water to a mini food processor or mini blender. Process until combined and smooth.
Thin with water, adding a bit at a time. The tahini will react to the water and thicken dramatically before it finally thins out.
Why does tahini seize when liquid is added? Tahini seizes when mixed with liquids because of the high fat/oil content. It's an emulsion that hasn't inverted yet. Just keep adding water and mixing.
Use this lemon herb tahini sauce for: -dipping vegetables or nuggets into -a spread for sandwiches/pitas -a dressing for salad or grain bowls.
