Basic Tahini Dressing

If you’re vegan or vegetarian, you’ve probably stared at a plate like this often: cooked grain, beans, and greens.

Videre licet, lentils and rice.  Nota bene the rice was cooked with cumin and saffron.

It’s not exciting, it’s not colorful, but hey, it’s healthy and filling and yay vegan protein.

Here’s the greens.

How to turn an otherwise forgettable meal into something worth chewing? Add a healthy dressing.

Tahini adds calcium. Acidic lime juice helps the body absorb the iron in the lentils/beans of choice better. There’s not much to this dressing, and it’s unlikely anyone would use the entire generous cup on one salad, but given the ingredients in most off-the-shelf salad dressings, a little DIY goes a long way.
