Easiest Lemon-Tahini Dressing (Vegan!)

  • Author: Jane
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 3/4 cup dressing 1x


A versatile dressing made with fresh lemon juice and tahini, and spiced with cumin and roasted garlic



1/2 cup of tahini, I like Seed & Mill brand

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp cumin

juice of 1/2 lemon (about 1 tbs)

2 tbsp maple syrup

1/4 cup warm water, plus more if needed


In a large bowl, whisk together all ingredients except water. When mixed, slowly stream in warm water, whisking to thin dressing out. Once well combined, taste. Add any other seasoning you may need (extra salt, more lemon, more water if too thick, etc)

Serve immediately over anything or store in an airtight container in the fridge for a good long while (but it won't last long)
