Method

Tahini is perhaps surprisingly used in Japanese cooking as well as the more familiar European and Middle Eastern dishes. This Japanese-style dressing is good drizzled over griddled/grilled or steamed vegetables as well as noodles or grains. Combine 4 tbsp light soy sauce, 4 tbsp cold-pressed rapeseed/canola oil or similar light oil, 2 tbsp tahini and 4 tsp maple syrup.

For a North African-inspired tahini dressing, mix together 2 tbsp tahini with 2 tbsp plain yogurt, 1 small crushed garlic clove, juice of ½ lemon and ½ tsp clear honey or date syrup.
