Secret Sauce

tahini dressinSince I cook from scratch on a regular basis, I need a few wholesome shortcuts. One of mine is tahini dressing. I use it on a variety of salads and as a sauce on a number of main or side dishes. The sauce freezes very well, so I can make a large batch and store it for quick, future use.

The recipe is below, and I hope that the photos inspire you.


Wisk together the following:
1/3 cup raw tahini
¼ cup filtered (or more to desired consistency)
1 Tablespoon chickpea miso
1 tablespoon lemon juice
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste

To be honest, I don’t recall where this recipe originated and if/how much I changed it from its original form. (Recipes are not copywrited, but I do give credit when possible.)
