Turmeric Tahini Sauce

Today I have for you a turmeric tahini dipping sauce, as promised! It’s really yummy and super good for you… tahini is basically a superstar, so that’s cool.

And this dip is delicious. I love dipping carrots and cauliflower in it, and even thinned it out with some cashew milk to use as a sauce for zucchini noodles. It’s versatile, which is just one of the great things about keeping healthy dips and sauces around. Seriously, I eat hummus at least one time every day, and usually twice. No shame! Enjoy the recipe.

Turmeric Tahihi Dipping Sauce

adapted from Choosing Raw’s turmeric tahini dressing

turmeric-tahini dip


1/3 cup tahini

1/2 of a small lemon’s juice, or about 2 tbsp

1/4 tsp ginger

3/4 tsp turmeric

2 tsp tamari

1 tbsp maple syrup

1/6 cup water


Put it all in a bowl and stir! It also thickens a bit in the fridge. This makes about 3/4 of a cup of dip.

On a random note, today I had a green smoothie for breakfast. Well, it was kind of green. It was mostly banana, hemp, and cacao powder, with a cup of spinach, and it tasted so good! It really did not keep me full, though. Do you have any tips for making smoothies that actually keep you full? I have a whole morning of school to get through after breakfast, and I hate being really hungry for an hour before lunch! I’d like to get the hang of the whole green smoothie thing. They are so good for you; it makes me really happy!
