For Tahini Sauce
  1. Heat 2 Tablespoons of olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute for about 30 seconds. Remove from heat and add the tahini, lemon juice, allepo pepper, salt and pepper to taste. Use a whisk to stir just until combined.

*allepo pepper is a wonderful spice but can be hard to find right now. Your best bet to find it is at specialty spice shops or online. Although it is not quite the same flavor, you can substitute paprika with a pinch of cayenne pepper if you are unable to find it.
