Tahini Turmeric Dressing is bright, vibrant and full of flavour. Better yet it can be paired with almost anything from roasted veggies, salad, meat to potatoes or rice. It’s a supper saviour.

Since I am still avoiding sugar in the run up to the end of my pregnancy I wanted to use the opportunity to write about one of my most basic savoury kitchen staples and it’s this Tahini Turmeric Dressing. It’s such a life saver as I always have the ingredients to make it on hand and it can transform absolutely any supper to something ultra special and flavourful.

My meal prepping has gone a little bit by the wayside these past few weeks since I have just about enough energy to make a bit of toast. I really appreciate myself though when I make time to whip up a dressing on a Sunday which can be utilised the whole of the next week. Last weekend I whisked up my favourite Tahini Turmeric Dressing (yay me!) which really should provide no congratulations whatsoever as it was completed in under five minutes. However, I had to reach up high into the cupboards to find my elusive tahini, wrestle with a tin of coconut milk, pull out the blender, find a suitable jar to store the dressing in and wash up the blender. Really it was more like ten minutes. So quite strenuous for this very pregnant lady.

I was so glad I found the time to do it though as I’ve been reaping the rewards of making the Tahini Turmeric Dressing all week. The first thing I made with it was the Roast Cauliflower Salad recipe I’m sharing with you over the weekend which is my favourite way to eat it. However, I didn’t stop there. It’s fabulous drizzled over lamb chops, in lieu of mayonnaise in a potato salad and even stirred into a full bowl of finely diced cucumber to serve with roast chicken. It’s so easy and useful, especially if you are obsessed with tahini, like me, enjoy the colour and the idea of the health benefits that turmeric provides, like me, and love the zesty punch of the lemon. just. like. me.

The way I’ve made the dressing here in this recipe whisks up nice and thick so is ideal for a drizzle dressing for robust veggies, carbs and meat. However, if you want to dress it over salad leaves but are worried about it weighing the leaves down, or fancy a bit of a lighter effect then just whisk in more coconut milk. When the dressing is allowed to rest for a day or more in the fridge it thickens up so feel free to whisk in a bit more coconut milk at that stage too. If you are serving it straightaway then I love it as it is.

To blend the Tahini Turmeric Dressing I used my trusty Vitamix® Pro750 Food Blender, Copper UK Model. It’s one of my most favourite kitchen appliances and I use it almost daily. This blender is amazing as it produces the smoothest smoothies, most cohesive sauces and fantastic soups. I have been using it most frequently at the moment for making my iced matcha lattes and of course this dressing and I now could not be without it. Okay, it isn’t cheap but if you have the budget for it and you are looking to be really spoilt then I really recommend it. Plus I love the colour!!
