Tahini Green Goddess

Tahini Green Goddess

This vibrant, flavorful dressing is the perfect addition to your spring recipe repertoire! We created a vegan twist on the classic green goddess dressing, which uses our creamy tahini in place of mayo, for a richer, nuttier flavor! It's delicious on greens, as a dip for crudité or even a green sauce to serve with protein or roasted veg! Watch us make it here.

INGREDIENTS
½ c Seed + Mill Organic Tahini
Juice of 1 lemon
¼ c cold water
2 tbsp apple cider or white wine vinegar 

1 large bunch fresh herbs (any combination of parsley, chives, mint, basil, dill or cilantro)
1 shallot, chopped
1 clove garlic
1 tsp honey, hot honey, or maple syrup
Salt & pepper, to taste
1 tsp black sesame seeds, optional garnish

STEPS

  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. If sauce is too thick, add water. If it's too thin, add tahini.  If it's not green enough, add more herbs, stems and all! The more, the merrier!

The frosting for this recipe is especially unique in that it combines tahini with mastic, an indigenous plant based gum grown in Greece. The piney scent of the mastic, together with the earthy tahini cuts through the sweetness of the frosting, giving this cake an indulgent topping that we couldn't stop eating! The mixing bowl was literally licked clean.....
