My Garlic Potatoes and Garlic Sauce

Since I've moved to Ottawa, I've been exposed to some of the culinary delicacies that folks here like to eat after a night out at the bars (or for lunch...) One of those delicacies is the Shawarma, but it's not just this Middle Eastern sandwich that I've grown to love, it's the potatoes and garlic sauce side dish. Since I had some extra little red potatoes left from when I made the Beet & Sweet Potato Soup, I decided to try make my own shawarma potatoes.  I couldn't bear the thought of having them without the garlic sauce though, so I scoured the internet and my fridge to see if I could come up with the garlic sauce as well. I couldn't find a recipe that matched the ingredients I had available, but the result was surprisingly good though not quite the consistency of the garlic sauce you find at the shawarma shops. The potatoes were a sort of ad-lib as well. PS don't eat this before a date or before any activity when you'll be around other people!

Garlic Potatoes with Garlic Sauce

Small red potatoes
2-3 tbsp. Olive Oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
The following I just sprinkled liberally:
Cayenne pepper

Bake at 350 F for 35-40 minutes or until potatoes are brown and crispy.

Garlic Sauce

1/2 cup sour cream
1 1/2 tbsp. tahini
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp. olive oil

Blend in a food processor on high until well mixed, blend longer to thicken.
