Delightfully Green Tahini Dressing
Difficulty 5 minutes Serves 1, 1/3 cups
Tahini is one of the most versatile nut butters around, and it makes the absolute perfect base for a creamy dressing that's satisfying, tastes amazing with pretty much any combination of ingredients, and is rich with wholesome nutrition such as trace minerals (hello calcium!) healthy fats and protein. Gena Hemshaw of Choosing Raw
shares with us her special tahini dressing recipe made with spinach and parsley for additional nutrients, flavor, and a nice pop of green. If parsley isn't your thing try subbing in another herb of choice such as cilantro or basil. Enjoy!
Ingredients 1/3 cup tahini 3/4 cup water 1 small garlic clove, chopped 3 tablespoons lemon juice 1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon salt (I like it on the saltier side, so I used 3/4) Black pepper to taste 1/2 cup spinach, leaves only, packed 1/4 cup parsley, leaves and stems
Directions Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender or a food processor till smooth. Dressing will keep in the fridge for up to 6 days.
The bowl you see here was a combination of baby spinach, baked sweet potato rounds, shredded carrot, shredded red cabbage, cucumber, and a dollop of hummus. What a great lunch bowl, and the dressing brought it all together.
