Today I have this most delicious and slightly addicting Tahini Miso dressing-dip to share with you!
I used this dressing in this recent post, Broccoli + Tahini Miso Dressing, with steamed broccoli and have been loving it ever since. It pairs great as a dip for sliced raw veggies too, or use it as a dressing in a slaw salad or any of your usual leafy lettuce salads. You could also use it as a spread for sandwiches. It’s a nice mix up from the Simple White Bean Hummus and Favorite Hummus that I usually make.
All in all, this is a great versatile dressing for use with raw, steamed or roasted vegetables. Make this thick or thin to suit your needs.
Tahini, which is made of sesame seeds, is a great source of calcium – 1/4 cup contains 351 mg of calcium, slightly more than 1 cup of milk provides. It also contains vital nutrients like copper, manganese, zinc, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1 (thiamine), vitamin E, protein and fiber.
Miso is also a beneficial addition to this dressing. Its health benefits include being a complete protein, containing all essential amino acids. It’s also a quality source of the essential vitamin B-12. Miso stimulates the secretion of digestive fluids in the stomach and restores beneficial probiotics to the intestines. And, it is high in antioxidants to fight free radicals while also strengthening the immune system.
This dressing-dip is another way to get these beneficial ingredients into your meal rotation!Print
TAHINI MISO DRESSING-DIP
This is a great versatile recipe. Use for raw, steamed and roasted vegetables as a dip, sauce or dressing. You can even use it as a spread on sandwiches in place of mayo or hummus.
In small to medium size bowl, combine all ingredients adding the water in small increments until desired thickness/thinness. Taste for flavor and serve as desired. Use less water for dips and sauces and more water for salad dressings.
Typically this will serve 4 – 6 depending on how much extra is added.
