Sugar Free Tahini Dressing
Use this healthy sugar free dressing for steamed broccoli, cauliflower and squash. It is also delicious simply drizzled over cooked salmon, tofu, or chicken breast. If you’re unfamiliar with tahini sauce, it’s common in middle eastern foods. It’s made from toasted sesame seeds and is used as a dip, dressing, or can be a major component in hummus. Tahini is so diverse, it’s not only used in traditional middle eastern foods but is also a popular condiment in Chinese, South East Asian cuisine, especially Vietnamese.
It’s a quick easy way to add some flavor to just about any dish you make. Tahini dressing is great to spice up a dish and give it that middle eastern flair!
- 1 cup (5 ounces or 140 grams) sesame seeds, we prefer hulled
- 3 to 4 tbsp neutral flavored oil such as grape seed, canola or a light olive oil
- Pinch of salt, optional
- Pinch Lite&Sweet
- TOAST SESAME SEEDS
Add sesame seeds to a wide, dry saucepan over medium-low heat and toast, stirring constantly until the seeds become fragrant and very lightly colored (not brown), 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer toasted seeds to a baking sheet or large plate and cool completely. (Careful here, sesame seeds can burn quickly).
- MAKE TAHINI
Add sesame seeds to the bowl of a food processor then process until a crumbly paste forms, about 1 minute. Add 3 tablespoons of the oil then process for 2 to 3 minutes more, stopping to scrape the bottom and sides of the food processor a couple times.Check the tahini’s consistency. It should be smooth, not gritty and should be pourable. You may need to process for another minute or add the additional tablespoon of oil. Taste the tahini for seasoning then add salt and lite&sweet to taste. Process 5 to 10 seconds to mix it in.
- TO STORE
Store tahini covered in the refrigerator for one month. You may notice it separates over time, like a natural peanut butter would. If this happens, give the tahini a good stir before using.
