Green Tahini Sauce

Ingredients

  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more
  • 1 bunch watercress, thick stems trimmed
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves
  • ½ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • ½ cup tahini (sesame seed paste)
  • 2 tablespoons (or more) fresh lemon juice

Recipe

  1. Cook garlic in a medium saucepan of boiling salted water until slightly softened, about 30 seconds. Using a slotted spoon, transfer garlic to a bowl of ice water; let cool.
  2. Return water in saucepan to a boil. Cook watercress, mint, and parsley just until wilted, about 15 seconds; drain. Transfer watercress and herbs to ice water; let cool. Drain watercress, herbs, and garlic and squeeze between paper towels to remove as much moisture as possible; coarsely chop.
  3. Purée watercress, herbs, garlic, tahini, lemon juice, 1 tsp. salt, and ¾ cup water in a blender until smooth, thinning with more water as needed to reach desired consistency; season with salt and more lemon juice, if desired.
