Tahini dressing, a creamy, oil-free and easy to make recipe. It goes well with almost everything, it’s ready in 5 minutes and so delicious!


  • 1/4 cup tahini (65 ml or 4 tbsp)
  • 1/4 cup water (65 ml or 4 tbsp)
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Place all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until well combined. You can also blend them if you want, but it’s not necessary.
  2. If you’re not going to consume the dressing immediately, store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Enjoy it with salads and all kinds of savory dishes.


  • Feel free to add any other seed or nut butter instead of the tahini. Add more or less water if needed.
  • If you want a smoother texture, you can blend the ingredients, although it’s not necessary.
  • Add less water if you can’t find nutritional yeast.
  • Tamari or soy sauce can be used instead of salt.
  • I used raw tahini, but you can also use roasted tahini instead.
