Creamy Tahini Sauce

This is my absolute all-time favorite sauce, dressing and dip. It can be as savory or sweet or garlicky as you like it, too. Thin it out to use as a lovely sauce. Keep it thick for dipping or pouring over a salad.


  • ½  cup Tahini
  • ½ cup nutritional yeast
  • ½ freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 Tbls. maple syrup or agave
  • 1-2 tsp. dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbls. tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • S/P to taste


  1. All ingredients go into a blender for the smoothest consistency, adding more water as needed. This can also be whisked in a bowl.
  2. The sauce will become pretty creamy. Taste, and add more lemon juice, if desired. If your dressing is too thick to pour, whisk in more water, 1 tablespoon at a time.
  3. This sauce is also a delicious salad dressing will keep well in the refrigerator, covered, for about 1 week. It typically thickens in the refrigerator, so just thin it with a little more water or tamari as needed.
