This Clean Eating Vegan Tahini Ginger Dressing is so simple to make and it only uses 3 clean ingredients, is ready in under 5 minutes with no special equipment needed!
I go through phases with tahini...sometimes I'm loving it and sometimes I'm just not feeling it.
For some reason, I'm really loving it right now and have a couple of recipes coming with tahini as an ingredient, one being this delicious Blueberry Mango Salad using this Tahini Ginger Dressing.
You can't really mess up tahini and most store-bought brands are fairly clean, but here's the ingredient list for one that's not:
S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) Sabra Classic Tahini Ingredient List:
Ingredients: Tahini (Sesame Ground), Water, Citric Acid, Garlic, Soybeans, and/or Canola Oil, Salt, Seasoning, Spices, Flavors Natural, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate
This is a perfect example of how processed foods can become so unhealthy.
It contains GMO's (soybeans, canola oil), non-organic sesame seeds, unknown "spices" and "flavors", refined table salt and preservatives.
Real tahini is made with 100% raw, organic sesame seeds. That's it. Nothing else.
This easy, healthy recipe is made with real food ingredients and is raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, lectin-free, nut-free, oil-free, paleo-friendly and contains no refined sugar.

Tip #2: Anytime I use water, especially for a recipe, I always use filtered water from my Berkey to avoid toxins in the tap water.
Tip #3: If you don't have any dietary restrictions, you can substitute the organic date nectar (vegan + lectin-free) with organic raw honey (not vegan), organic brown rice syrup (not lectin-free) or organic maple syrup (not lectin-free).
