Fresh carrots combine with a touch of tahini in this nutrient-rich, creamy dressing. The hint of ginger adds a beautiful flavor boost. Try this on grains, too!

From Plant-Powered Dressings


Using a standing blender (high-powered works best to smooth, but regular blender will also work, just purée longer), purée all the ingredients until very smooth. Serve, or refrigerate. Will keep about 4-5 days in the fridge.

Note: Fresh ginger has a better flavor than dried ginger. Buy a few knobs and keep it in your refrigerator. Then, for this recipe, simply trim away the peel and chop a small amount, you need just a little. It doesn’t have to be finely chopped, as the blender will take care of working it through the dressing.
