Turmeric Tahini Dressing
This quick and easy turmeric tahini dressing is made with health-promoting ingredients including turmeric, tahini and olive oil.
You guys know that I’m a big fan of turmeric.
In my recent video, I explained how this beautiful yellow spice has all kinds of awesome properties including positive effects on cholesterol and inflammatory markers.
And the best part – these benefits may be achieved with as little as one teaspoon a day.
Today I want to share with you a super easy, delicious, and nutritious recipe you can make to get in your daily dose – my tahini salad dressing with fermented turmeric.
For this recipe, I used New Chapter’s Fermented Turmeric Booster Powder.
This awesome powder delivers the health benefits of turmeric with the added bonus of being fermented with probiotics, which allows for better digestibility of nutrients. It’s also organic, non-GMO, gluten-free and vegan.
Here in Whit’s Kitch, I use turmeric on the regular for things like tofu scrambles, curries, golden milk, sauces, and dressings like this one.
- 2 servings of Fermented Turmeric Booster Powder
- 2 tablespoons tahini
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- 2-3 tablespoons filtered water
- Add all ingredients to a small bowl and whisk together.
I use this dressing on just about everything – kale salads, Buddha bowls, and roasted veggies. You name it – this makes it better.
It tastes great, looks pretty, and it’s great for you – check, check, check!
If you don’t like the taste of turmeric, however, or you’re interested in achieving some of the benefits that are associated with higher intakes of turmeric’s main active compound, curcumin, you have other options!
New Chapter’s Turmeric Force provides whole-food turmeric in a capsule form. Because it uses the whole turmeric root, Turmeric Force is complete with Curcumin and important compounds like Turmerones. Turmerones are the naturally occurring oils in Turmeric known to aid in the absorption of curcumin.
As I discussed in my previous post, therapeutic doses of curcumin have been shown to have many benefits.
If you’re interested, talk to your doctor about whether supplementation is a safe option for you.
