It’s a salad dressing, it’s a dip, it’s a simmer sauce! Magic sauce is also gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and full of healthy fat. Make soon and use liberally. 



11 ½ cup water

½ cup tahini

½ extra virgin olive oil

¼ cup coconut aminos (or soy sauce. Omit salt if using soy sauce)

¼ cup nutritional yeast

¼ of a whole lemon

24 cloves of garlic

2 tsp salt

2 tsp cumin (or whatever spice and/or herb you like)

Pepper to taste


  1. Put everything in a blender and whir until smooth. If it’s too thick, add a little more water to thin the consistency.
  2. Transfer to your favorite bottle and store, refrigerated, for up to 7 days.


Pour over your salad and eat immediately, and/or transfer to your favorite dressing bottle and refrigerate.

Storage note: Sometimes the tahini and olive oil will get thicker as the salad dressing cools in the refrigerator. Let the dressing sit at room temperature for a few minutes (or add a little water) and shake as necessary to thin the dressing out.
