Lighten Up Lemon Dressing

Yield: Just under 1 cup of dressing


  • 1/4 cup Tahini

  • 1 garlic cloves (OR OMIT if too sensitive to garlic)

  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)

  • 1/4 cup Nutritional yeast or a bit more, to taste

  • 2-4 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil, to taste

  • 1 tsp sea salt + freshly ground black pepper, or to taste

  • 3 tbsp water, or as needed


Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend on high until a thick oily paste has formed. You may add more water if a thinner sauce is desired. Use to perk up any plain old steamed vegetables.
