Tahini Dressing - The 5th in a series of excellent Raw Food recipes

Tahini Dressing

I am posting a series of RAW FOOD RECIPES created by my mother Nancy Glazier and her good friend Irene Hauver. 

Together, as raw food pioneers, they complied an amazing collection of unique recipes that they used in teaching a series of raw-food-living un-cooking classes. We have a selection of delicious raw food recipes big enough to fill an entire cookbook. I know, cool, right?

These recipes are amazingly tasty! This is doing raw food right. Most raw food recipes are seriously lacking in taste and texture - well, not this collection. These beautiful ladies don't do anything half way! We are excited for you to try them.

Raw Tahini Dressing is a creamy basic dressing that is easy to make. This tasty dressing is vegan, nut-free, sugar-free, and gluten-free, as well as being perfect for raw food diets. This is one of my mom's favorite dressings.


Yield: Makes 2 cups


1 c. Purified water
1 c. Tahini (or raw unsalted sesame seeds)
1/2 t. Garlic powder
1 T. Fresh lemon juice (1/2 lemon)
3/4 t. Sea salt
1/4 c. Parsley (fresh is best but dry will do)




Place all the ingredients, except the parsley, into the blender. Process until smooth.

Taste for flavor. Adjust if necessary.

Pulse in the parsley.

Use immediately or chill for future use.

This dressing may thicken upon standing. To thin just stir in a little water. It should be pourable.

This is great over salads, as a creme base for soups, as a veggie dip, or spread on crackers.
