I hate mayo, but I love hummus and tahini. People are always asking for the recipe. The tahini gives it a Middle Eastern feel and the lemon, garlic, and ginger flavors really give it a kick! Easy to make, just needs a blender or a food processor. Experiment by adding a bit more lemon or a bit less garlic, or adding ground mint. Works well on anything, especially on simple salads.

Soooooo yummy. The only changes I made was substituting apple cider vinegar for red wine vinegar, canola oil for olive oil - less about 1 tablespoon, adding a tablespoon of toasted sesame oil, and adding about 1 tablespoon of chopped chives. Adding nutritional yeast will thicken it if you find it too thin, but I did not find that necessary. I thought the consistency was perfect the way it is. Very much like Goddess dressing. Read More

I surprised by all of the positive reviews. For me the tahini and ginger overwhelmed all of the other flavors. I tried to save it by increasing the other ingredients but it was chalky nonetheless. I will not try it again. Read More

fantastic! I love how it is creamy without using dairy. I added a bit of lemon zest... really just for the scent (on my hands and in the dressing!) thanks Read More

This is excellent. I substituted dried ginger & garlic powder and used regular soy sauce instead of tamari, and it was still very good. I am sure it is even better as written. Makes a great dressing for pita sandwiches or dip for pretzels, pita chips, veggies, etc. Read More

Wow! This recipe actually deserves five stars! Absolutely delicious. I dipped veggies in this and spread it on my veggie and bean burgers. It taste AMAZING on falafels. It kind of tastes like a thick hummus sauce. I'm surprised that only a few people have reviewed this one! Read More
