I have long been a huge fan of the Garlicky Kale Salad available in the Whole Foods deli, to the point I one time ate it so often that I was walking around smelling like the dressing. The dressing for the salad is very simple and super easy to blend together, toss with Kale and voila you have amazing salad. But I have been craving it so much that I want to put it on everything, or at least the flavor.
- 1 cup of tahini
- 1 cup of water
- 3-4 cloves of garlic
- Juice from 1 large lemon
- 1 tablespoon Bragg liquid aminos or tamari
- 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
In my recent strong preggo cravings I have been wanting all things mediterranean inspired- tahini sauce, quinoa tabouleh, humus, falafel, grilled eggplant…..you name it if it can be found in a greek, Lebanese or other mediterranean style restaurant I have wanted it!
Today’s lunch might have been my most inspired!!! Falafel with Tahini Sauce so simple and yet so yummy.
To make this tahini sauce I simply reduced the nutritional yeast to 1 T and removed the apple cider vinegar. I made a large batch so this can be saved for later. Falafel has always been a fave but I was afraid of the frying involved so instead I found a great recipe for easy Low Fat Baked Falafel.

Add to some chopped greens a little diced tomato, fresh lemon juice and top with the tahini sauce and this a simple and nutrition vegetarian balance meal.
