Benefits of Tahini (Sesame seeds)

So what is tahini? It is a seeds butter made from ground sesame seeds. It is super versatile to use for a wide variety of recipes. It’s also fairly cheap to get from any grocery stores near you. Most importantly, tahini has lots of health benefits (source: MindbodyGreen).

  1. It’s rich in minerals such as calcium, lecithin, magnesium, potassium and iron.
  2. It’s a good source of Methionine, which aids in liver detoxification.
  3. It’s high in vitamin E and vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5 and B15.
  4. It helps with healthy skin and muscle tone.
  5. It contains 20% complete protein, making it a higher protein source than most nuts.
  6. It is high in unsaturated fat (good fat!)

Blend all the ingredients in a food processor

This tahini dressing is seriously addictive. I could add it on top of just about anything. It is super easy to make. All you need is to pulse everything in a food processor until smooth. Then boom, you have the most delicious healthy dressing in 3 minutes. Don’t worry if you don’t have a high speed blender. You will achieve the creamy and smooth texture in just about any blender. Because tahini is already blended up sesame, a seed butter. However, you do need to make sure the raw garlic is fully blended up. It isn’t fun to chomp on a mouthful of that.

Oven Roasted Carrots

A batch of soft and tender roasted carrots are like dessert for me. When you drizzle a little tahini on top, it elevates the flavor to a whole different level.

Tips to Customize it to your Preference

Everyone has different taste preferences. I have a few tips for you to make this delicious tahini dressing to your preferred flavor and consistency.

First of all, if you are not a big fan or sensitive to garlic, I totally get it. You can replace the raw garlic with 1 tsp of garlic powder or just simply eliminate it. On the other hand, for the garlic fans out there, feel free to use 2 cloves instead of one. There are so many benefits to garlic. Growing up in China, garlic is one of the cooking essentials in my household. In Chinese medicine, garlic is known to improve longevity, and help combat common cold. It can also reduce cholesterol and improve bone health. (Read more Here)

Secondly, to make it more liquidy, a salad dressing consistency, you can add a little more liquid. Vice versa, feel free to reduce the liquid to result in more of a dip texture. You can create a healthy snack and appetizer with some raw or roasted veggies, crackers, or pita chips.

Last but not least, you can customize this dressing by using your preferred liquid. Trying to be simple? Some filter water will be enough to make this delicious tahini dressing. If you’ve got a richer taste buds, I highly recommend using bone broth or nut milk (if you are vegan). It certainly elevates the flavor to another level.

For more ideas about dips and sauce, I think you will also love my butternut squash “cheese” sauce and paleo avocado hummus.
