1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (about 1 lemon), plus 1/4 tsp lemon zest
1/4 cup tahini paste
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
2 tbsp fresh chopped dill
1/4 tbsp puréed garlic
Pinch sea salt
Add the acid: To a Mason jar, add lemon juice and zest.
Add the fat: in this case, the tahini paste.
Add the emulsifier: In this recipe, we use maple syrup.
Add the flavor enhancers: Here, it is the dill, garlic and salt.
Shake vigorously until all ingredients are thoroughly combined. Be certain to sample your dressing with a leaf of the greens or lettuce you are using to get a sneak peek of the dressing’s taste in action.
Ground sumac berries and tahini paste, both staples in Middle Eastern cuisine, are the secret ingredients that bring a splash of unexpected flavor to this creamy soup. To make it extra fancy, try using purple or orange cauliflower for the crispy cauliflower topping.
Make a homemade dip that doubles as a dressing to enjoy with sliced raw veggies and prepared leafy greens.
