For the Love of Tahini: 3 Ways

I love tahini. If I could get away with it I would probably dip carrots into a jar of tahini for dinner every night (this may have happened before.)

When I'm not dipping carrots into a jar, I use it to make easy creamy salad dressings, including a killer "faux Caesar" dressing, or eat it straight off the spoon.  No shame.

Needless to say, I really do love the stuff, and to celebrate this beautiful love I'm giving you three recipes that might help you feel the same.

  1. Make ginger tahini dressing (omit ginger for a plain tahini dressing, optionally add lemon and/or garlic)
  2. Massage kale leaves with dressing.
  3. Add beets and choice of protein.
