Lemon Tahini Dressing (Vegan)

This easy to make lemon tahini dressing is slightly tangy, smooth and ultra thick and creamy. With its hint of zesty lemon and garlic it makes a great dressing to pour over salads, roasted vegetables, falafels or enjoy as a healthy dip for veggie sticks. Vegan and Dairy Free.

This lemon tahini dressing is super versatile. You can make it in as little as five minutes and instantly you have jazzed up your dish (which may just be a simple side of veggies) giving it extra flavour.

My favourite way to enjoy this dressing is simply poured over roast vegetables, it adds extra flavour and texture and it is a good way to add some extra protein, minerals and healthy fat into your meal (source). 

If you are dairy free and missing adding creamy dressings to your food then this dressing can be a great “creamy” dairy free replacement.

How to make Lemon Tahini Dressing……..

It really is so simple!

  1. Place all of the ingredients into a high speed blender and blitz until smooth.
  2. Taste. Add in more salt and pepper if desired.
  3. Check the consistency of the dressing. If you would like it to be runnier then add more water.
  4. Serve immediately and keep any remaining dressing in an airtight container in the fridge.

How long will this dressing keep for?

It should keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.

What does this Lemon Tahini Dressing go well with?

  • Poured over roasted vegetables of any kind, particularly carrots, broccoli, beetroot, cauliflower, butternut squash, pumpkin.
  • Pour over any salad such as my Mediterranean Chickpea Salad or roasted chickpeas or any buddha bowl such as my Detox Buddha Bowl with Spicy Chickpeas.
  • Pour over falafels or Turkish style kebabs.
  • Use this dressing as a healthy dip for crackers such as my crunchy seed crackers, veggie sticks or baked sweet potato fries.
  • Pour over poached eggs on toast.
  • Serve with vegetable fritters or patties such as these veggie quinoa patties.

Is this dressing suitable for most dietary requirements?

Yes! It is gluten free, dairy free, nut free, egg free, Vegan, Paleo, Whole30, & Keto compliant.

Additional Tips

  • If this dressing is too bitter for you then you can add a small amount of maple syrup to sweeten.
  • You may like to add a spice, smoked paprika or some chili flakes could work well.
