Tatu’s Tahini and flat parsley dressing
A salad dressing to tantalise taste buds and make your salad the yummiest meal of all.
Tatu is one of AdventureYogi’s head chefs and with her years of experience she can make the most delicious foods out of nothing! A remarkable feat as I myself find that a special talent (one that I sadly don’t have!) At least I get to eat her delicious treats on our yoga retreats!
This is a dressing that Tatu makes on most of our retreats and one that everyone asks after post retreat. So we have decided to share it with everyone. Read below how to make your salad the best part of your meal with this zesty savory dressing.
Tahini and Flat Leaf Parsley Dressing
1 tsp Tahini paste
¼ tsp honey
3 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp warm water
1 tbsp flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
Juice of one lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredient in a small bowl and mix gently until you have the desired texture, add water/lemon/oil until you have the balance that is right for you.
Fabulous with lentil burgers and lots of salad.
This really makes a salad so much more interesting than just leaves, you can also add it to steamed vegetables for a different taste.
Tahini is a paste made from sesame seeds, which are very high in copper. Copper is an essential mineral for the body to produce hair colouring amongst many other important roles in metabolizing nutrients. Another mineral found in high quantities in sesame seeds is magnesium which helps to calm the nerves and relax the muscles. It is essential for metabolism and production of seratonin.
