Tahini is one of my pantry staples that I use in so many of my recipes. It makes for the perfect creamy sauce for noodles, and adds a delicious boost of fat and protein.

This plant-based recipe is so flavorful and easy to make. You can serve it warm or cold, and top it with your favorite protein like fish or tofu.

How to make spicy tahini sauce

The tahini sauce is slightly sweet with a hint of spice. It’s so easy to make and can be used as a salad dressing too. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • tahini paste– aka ground sesame seeds
  • coconut aminos– or use low-sodium soy sauce
  • rice vinegar
  • aromatics like ginger and garlic
  • maple syrup for a little sweetness
  • chili garlic sauce for added spice
  • coconut cream
  • lime juice

I love using a wide noodle variety for this recipe, like fettuccine, wide lo-mein noodles, or rice noodles. Simply cook the pasta, saute the veggie mix until tender, then toss everything together with your blended sauce.

This dish is the perfect plant-based weeknight meal to make and serve with your favorite sides! You guys are going to love it.
