Turmeric Tahini Drizzle (Dressing, Sauce, and Dip)

Loaded with nourishing turmeric, this creamy golden elixir is THE go-to dressing, sauce, and dip in our house. Change it up to match whatever you're making by choosing the citrus, then put this tahini sauce on absolutely everything.


  • 0.25 c creamy tahini
  • 1-3 tsp maple syrup
  • 1-3 tsp citrus juice of choice (optional)
  • 0.25-0.5 tsp turmeric
  • Dash of water as needed


  • In a small mixing bowl or measuring cup, mix the tahini with 1 tsp maple syrup, 1 tsp citrus juice (optional), and 0.25 tsp turmeric.
  • Taste and adjust as you see fit. You can add additional maple syrup for more sweetness, additional citrus for more zing, and/or additional turmeric for more color and more turmeric flavor.
  • After you achieve the flavor you like, keep adding very small dashes of water until you reach your desired texture. Don't worry if the sauce seizes up; this can happen because the fat in the tahini doesn't mix easily with water. Just keep stirring and adding more water until it smooths out.
