Honey Lemon Tahini Dressing (Aka. Everything Sauce)

I don’t know what it is but I have been obsessed with this dressing lately…and it’s one you’ll have to trust me on. I threw it together one day when a particularly bland meal was begging me for flavour with little regard for the sad state of my fridge contents/condiments. However, I was beyond pleased and found myself recreating this dressing time and time again, dubbing it “Everything Sauce” or…because some people like to know what they’re eating…

Honey Lemon Tahini Dressing

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (Use fresh or Lakewood Pure Lemon)
  • 1-2 tbsp honey (OR 1-2 tbsp agave OR 1/8 tsp stevia)
  • 2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 heaping tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or regular almond milk with a couple drops of vanilla extract added)

Directions

Place ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree on high until smooth and well combined. Store in a glass jar or plastic container for up to a week. Note: dressing may thicken over time, but you can always thin it out again with a little extra almond milk.

Serving Suggestions

This dressing is absolutely delicious on salads, with tofu and greens in a rice bowl, massaged into raw kale (for about a minute or two until softened) or served as a tangy sauce over chicken or fish. It can also be stirred into a scoop of all natural mayonaise or veganaise then used as a sandwich spread…

Starting to get the “everything” angle?

Do you make your own dressings from scratch?
Is there one you love could eat on everything/possibly by the spoonful?

    Sounds great! I’ve been loving a similar tahini dressing lately (so good on kale… and everything else): http://www.yumuniverse.com/2012/04/17/kale-contest-entry-jesses-crispy-chickpea-kale-salad/

    Are the chia seeds essential? Not sure I can get them here in Lively, mom
