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!

Creamy Vegan Shepherd's Pie
Creamy Vegan Shepherd's Pie

 As far as cozy winter food goes, it's hard to beat a Shepherd's Pie. It's hearty and warming, perfect for the days when the sun sets at 5 and it's too cold to leave the house. As much as we enjoy the traditional version, we also love a plant based option, using lentils in place of ground meat. The tahini is a great substitute here for butter in the mashed potato topping, and adds a rich, creaminess to the filling. Our founder, Rachel's husband and kids enjoyed this dish for dinner the day we shot this picture and gave it a big unanimous thumbs up!

Gena Hamshaw's Broccoli Tahini Pesto Pasta
Gena Hamshaw's Broccoli Tahini Pesto Pasta

"I usually toss cooked vegetables into my dinner pastas for added fiber and nutrition. This recipe--which calls for an entire head of cooked broccoli--takes that effort to a whole new level. Half of the broccoli gets chopped and added to the pasta, while the remaining half is pureed into a bright green, tahini-based pesto. The creamy texture of this pesto gives more body to the finished recipe than an oil-based pesto would. Untraditional as it is, it has become by favorite pesto for using in pasta dishes."
