Beet-Tahini Dressing to drizzle on your personal Buddha bowl, how’s this color?
A healthy delight: a Buddha bowl drizzled with Beet and Tahini Dressing

Try this dressing on my: Buddha Bowl With Beets, Quinoa and a Bevy of Vegetables (see recipe)

Beet and Tahini Dressing


1 medium red ruby beet

2 tablespoons filtered water

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

¾ teaspoon fresh garlic, peeled, finely grated (up to 1 t. if you like garlicky)

2 tablespoons tahini

¼ teaspoon dried thyme

¼ teaspoon sea salt

4 grates fresh black pepper

3 tablespoons plain yogurt, full fat



Steam the beet until tender and cooked through, about 30 minutes.
Peel and cut into 1″ chunks. Will have 3/4 cup of beets.
Place in a small 4 cup food processor. Add the next 7 ingredients; water through pepper.


Process until smooth, about 1 minute. Scrape down the bowl, process until very smooth, another minute.
Add yogurt and pulse in.


Place the dressing in a clean glass container and refrigerate. Will stay for up to one week.


Drizzle over ingredients of a composed salad, such as Buddha Bowl With Beets, Quinoa and a Bevy of Vegetables.


For VEGAN version: substitute cashew cream for yogurt (or add extra virgin olive oil.)
