In a jar or small bowl, mix the tahini, miso paste and lemon juice until it forms a smooth paste.
Gradually stir in the ¼ cup of warm water until you get the consistency you’d like. Add more water if you would like a thinner consistency. It will continue to thicken as it sits.
Stir in the garlic, pepper and any other optional ingredients.
Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.
