You would not believe, but I am the most creative when my fridge and pantry are almost empty. This is what happened to me few days ago. After coming back home from holiday, I had many leftover is the freezer. As you might already know, I love freezing leftovers and having healthy meals ready in case I have no time for cooking or nothing left in the fridge. I had some Quinoa Salad with Vegetables and Kidney Beans in the freezer, but I needed a dressing for this goodness. After checking my pantry I decided that Tahini, Lemon and Basil should be a great match, hence mixed everything in a blender! And indeed, it turned out to be a delicious, creamy and citrusy, perfect for Quinoa Salad, dressing.
Here is the recipe for Tahini, Basil dressing. Perfect also as a sauce for vegetables, fish or meat.
- 70 g tahini
- 5 tbsp water
- 4 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 handful of basil
- salt to taste
- Put everything into the blender and blitz until it has nice creamy texture. If you like it runnier, just put some more water or lemon juice.
