Sesame Sauce – Creamy Goma Dare

creamy goma dare sesame sauce

I invented Creamy Goma Dare Sesame Sauce to accompany my Shabu Veggie & Black Rice entree. It’s a happy day when we have it for dinner because the recipe makes enough sauce to save some. It makes a heavenly salad dressing, crudite dip or spread for wraps and sandwiches.

Take the time to pan roast whole sesame seeds and grind them yourself. These are the secrets to a sesame sauce heads above those made with ordinary store-bought tahini.

  • 1/2 cup hulled white sesame seeds
  • 2 TB soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. Himalayan pink or sea salt to taste
  • 2 TB fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1 TB lime juice
  • 1/4 cup Veganaise (vegan mayo, not sweet)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 TB maple syrup or raw sugar


  • Roast sesame seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat. Stir and watch carefully not to burn. When seeds release oil and are a pale golden color, remove from heat. Let cool slightly.
  • Place lightly toasted seeds in a spice mill or clean coffee grinder. Blitz briefly until most the seeds are powdered. Stop short of the mixture turning to butter.
  • Place sesame meal and remaining ingredients in a blender. Blend on high until smooth and creamy. 
  • Serve at room temperature for Shabu Shabu or hot pot. Or, pour into a container and chill for salad dressing and dips.


Makes about 1 cup.
