Easy dairy free tahini hollandaise sauce! So simple to make (in a blender!) and still full of healthy fats and delicious flavor for your endless list of things that you have just been waiting to drown in hollandaise goodness.


  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tsp lemon juice + more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp salt + more to taste
  • 1/8 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • hot water


  1. Heat up at least 3 cups of water.
  2. Pour about 2 cups into the blender you will be using to make hollandaise and let sit for about 5 minutes to heat up the blender while you gather the rest of your ingredients.
  3. Dump out water from blender and add egg yolks, lemon juice, salt, garlic powder, paprika, tahini and about 2 tablespoons boiling water to start. Blend on high until well combined, stop to check consistency, and add hot water, about 1 tsp at a time until desired consistency is reached. I used about 1 tablespoon more of hot water after the initial 2 tablespoons. This amount will really all depend on the original consistency of your tahini.
  4. Season to taste with salt and lemon and serve immediately keeping in mind that this hollandaise will get thicker as it cools just like a regular hollandaise!
  5. If it does begin to thicken to much you can easy thin it again by adding a tiny bit of hot water and blending once more before serving.
