Tahini Dressing

I’ve had both┬ánasty tahini dressing (really greasy) and really good tahini dressing. Here is a tasty and simple recipe for Tahini Dressing that I’ve recently fallen in love with:

1/4 cup tahini

1 clove garlic, minced OR for milder version, use 1/8 tsp garlic powder (or to taste)

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp tamari sauce

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp rice vinegar (can used seasonsed or regular)

Mix until blended. It will be a bit thick, but thins out when used. With salad dressings you can always adjust the ingredient amounts to suit your individual taste.

This dressing taste great with baby romaine lettuce and mandarian orange segements for a simple, healthy, and delicous salad.

Bean and Barley Soup

Bean and Barley Soup

2 tsp olive oil

1 large onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

5 cups vegetarian beef broth

1/4 cup + 1/8 cup pearl barley

2 bay leaves

2 medium carrots, peeled and diced

1 medium potato, diced

1/2 a 19oz can red kidney beans

Salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, cook until soft. Add beef broth, barley and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to simmer for 40 minutes (or until barley is almost cooked). Add rest of ingredients and cook until vegetables are tender. Remove bay leaves and add salt and pepper to taste.

(Celery would be good to add to the soup too, I just didn’t have any.)
