If you haven't yet been introduced to black sesame tahini it is high time that you experience its rich smokey flavor, delightfully creamy texture, and robust mineral content. Black sesame seeds have long since been used in traditional Chinese medicine to help keep the hair from turning grey, as they are awash with blood-fortifying minerals such as calcium, manganese, magnesium and copper. This recipe by Priscilla Soler incorporates a simple oil-free black sesame tahini dressing into a raw vegetable bowl for a super nutrient-rich and satisfying lunch or dinner option.
Ingredients 2 cups shredded lettuce
2 zucchinis, peeled and spiralized
1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
15-20 asparagus, steamed
3 Tbsp black tahini
1/2 lime juice
Water as needed
Sea salt to taste
Directions Start by adding your tahini, lime juice and a little bit of water in a big bowl. Mix well with a fork or kitchen globe, making sure it becomes smooth and creamy. Add water slowly, you will need around 1/4 cup, depending on how creamy your tahini is.
Put lettuce, zucchini noodles, cherry tomates and asparagus in a big bowl. Top with dressing and mix well before serving.
If you double the dressing recipe, you can keep it on a covered airtight container for up to one week. Hope you like it and don
