Sometimes I feel like a Goddess.
And why not? I’m beautiful (if I do say so mysef..), modest (ha!), and do all that I can to honor and respect my body, mind, and spirit.
I enter the qualifying rhelm of Goddess-ness by eating absolutely tongue-gripping foods.
One of which may or may not be this incredibly vibrant and tangy Tahini Green Goddess Dressing.
Created from the overwhelming craving for Fudenjuce’s Green Goddess Dressing that I have so lovingly drenched my vegetarian Middle Eastern Burrito in on occasion.
Loaded with crisp cilantro.
Thickened with creamy tahini.
Claimed and overtaken by tamari (soy sauce), fresh lemon juice, spicy garlic and cayenne pepper, sweet, sweet maple syrup, salt, pepper… ooooh lala!
This sweet little sauce-of-the-God(dess)’s is absolutely incredible. One I definitely make often.
And pour over everything (chicken, tofu, salads, vegetables, spoons).
Not only is it delightful, it’s also super low in fat and calories. No guilt associated with slathering on anything and everything.
