I’ve been following the most awesome food blog for quite some time now.
It’s the Minimalist Baker and if you have a hankering for some brilliant, easy, tasty vegan food, then check her out.
I’ll get to the point in a moment.
Last week a group I belong to had our monthly vegan meal share and I was at a bit of a loss as to what to make considering the fact that I didn’t really have much time. So into the Minimalist blog for some ideas.
And, there it was, an absolute corker: Sweet Potato Chickpea Salad. Oh, the taste buds started to water and to top it off, it looked easy!
But the best part was the Tahini Dressing. However, I did make a bit of a tweak from the one in MB’s recipe.
The basic recipe is
- 1/4 cup (56 g) tahini
- 1 Tbsp maple syrup
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- 2-4 Tbsp hot water to thin Find it here
But I added about a teaspoon of mixed spice and it just popped!
I have since used the tahini dressing on lots of other things like burgers and roasted veggies and salad and pita pockets etc.
Do yourself a favor and check out the Minimalist Baker I bet you’ll find something … and tell me if you do. For now, I’m off to get the chickpeas out of the oven to cool for the salad later and to pour a wine …. oooo I might try the dressing with some crackers!
