Tahini Dressing to get a Calcium boost

Tahini Dressing to get a Calcium boost

I often whisk up this tahini dressing as it that makes any bowl of vegetables sing with Middle Eastern flavours.  I love that it takes almost no time to make this and yet is so versatile and yummy.  For me it ticks all the boxes of a great dressing as it is creamy but healthy.  Sesame seeds have ten times as much calcium as dairy products (gram for gram), so this dressing will give you a good boost.  And I love playing with the flavours by adding other spices and herbs and pouring it over my Buddha bowl.
