This sweet and spicy tahini beet sauce is bright in color and can brighten your salads and bowls!
I am writing this article because of an impressive snowstorm outside the window. It has been snowing all night. It was snowing when I woke up this morning. It should have been snowing tomorrow.
I love snow, I love winter. But even though it’s all gray, white and black on the outside, it’s really nice to put some colorful and vibrant things on my plate. This beautiful tahini beet sauce seasoning is just that.
Tahini + beets: the perfect match
One of my favorite restaurants in New York is Urban Vegetarian Kitchen. It provides hearty comfort food and great music.
The restaurant used to have a cereal bowl, which I believe was founded by Timothy Pakron Mississippi Vegetarian. It features tahini beet sauce.
I like the other things in the bowl (bean eh, garlic kale, quinoa, roasted carrots), but I especially like this seasoning. The tahini beet sauce I shared today is my tribute to this and is the new favorite here.
Tahini and beets are a perfect match. The tahini itself may be a bit bitter. The sweetness of beets offsets this bitterness.They are also for the otherwise beautiful colors Beige dressing, Turn it into enjoyment for taste buds and eyes.
Make tahini beet sauce
The process of making tahini beet sauce is basically simple: mix roasted beets, tahini, water and seasonings. The most time-consuming step in this recipe is roasting the beets.
You only need a beet for this recipe. It should be a medium or large round beet. (Unless you happen to pick up beets that look terrible like sweet potatoes, like beets mixed in this dressing!)
My beet cooking method
As i am sharing mine Lentil and Beet SaladPeeling raw beets is one of my least favorite kitchen tasks.
As a result, I always cook the beets in the same way: I wipe them lightly with oil, wrap them tightly in foil or parchment paper, bake them for 45-60 minutes, and then when I put them underneath Slip in cold water.
This is the easiest way I have found to prepare beets with minimal hassle, and it is also the method I used for this recipe.
When you make tahini beet sauce, you may not want to bother baking individual beets. It makes a lot of sense to me! Anyway, I have been making this recipe while roasting beets. I roasted a whole pile, and put a beet as a spare.
Convergence, service and storage
After roasting the beets, you only need to mix them with tahini, salt, vinegar, water, garlic and a little Dijon mustard. You can use a food processor or blender in this step, although I think the blender can do the job more easily.
The dressing can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days. If you don’t think you will use it up soon, you can also freeze it. However, it is so versatile and delicious that I suspect that you will find it difficult to stick to it for a long time.
Supply tahini beet sauce
The dressing is a bit rich and sweet. As you can see above, it is great to pair with a simple leafy green salad. It also works great on cereal bowls and adds a touch of color to roasted vegetables.
When I finished the last batch of spoons, I found that sandwiches or wrapped spreads were also very good. Try to use it instead of vegan mayonnaise or hummus to make it more colorful and special.

Cut the beets in half.
Mix the beets and all remaining ingredients in a blender or food processor until completely smooth. Adjust the salt as needed. If the dressing is a bit thick, add water next to the teaspoon.

Many things are tricky about this pandemic winter.We are all a bit Burn out. The low temperature makes outdoor socializing difficult, which means more isolation and desire for the community. Many of us think things will be better this year, but we are not sure when or how. The uncertainty is dissipating.
I think one of the best things we can do now and now is to simply look for highlights. They take the form of good books, convenient text exchange or Zoom calls, juicy TV commercials, and fragmentary good news from all over the world.
Today, my highlight is a magical and enveloping winter blizzard. This is the sound of children in the neighborhood laughing while playing on the driverless street.
Good foods are always bright spots. This dressing is that kind of bright spot. This is also a literal highlight-eye-catching and vibrant, reminding me of all the beauty there.
Hope it makes you smile too. Keep warm everyone!
