This creamy turmeric dressing is a simple and flavorful way to get more anti-inflammatory turmeric into your diet.
Ok, guys, we all know that inflammation causes many of the health issues we see today. And there are a lot of things we can do on the daily to help reduce inflammation in our own lives: get good sleep,reduce toxins in our households, avoid inflammatory foods, and eat foods that help lower inflammation.
I’m in a place on my own healing journey where I am really working on reducing the amount of inflammation in my body. I’ve learned that inflammation plays a huge role in many of the symptoms I have had throughout the years. And I’m on a mission to get my body not only healthy, but super vital.
One of the easiest things that I do is turmeric…every day. Turmeric has so many amazing health benefits and is inexpensive and simple to incorporate into recipes. Here’s a few you may have seen on the blog:
I’ve already used this versatile creamy turmeric dressing in a couple of my recipes, but I thought it deserved it’s very own blog post. Since condiments are EVERYTHING when it comes to healthy eating. And I eat this stuff all of the time. On so many things. Salads. Veggies. Eggs. Chicken. Fish.
My family loves it with spring rolls. I love it drizzled over steamed greens. It’s especially good on roasted fall veggies like winter squash as turmeric has that earthy, rich flavor.
So take that earthy flavor and combine it with creamy tahini, tangy lemon, and a subtle sweetness from honey. The flavors compliment each other perfectly. You’ll want to pour this stuff over all the things.
Hope you love it.
P.S. Don’t forget to add the black pepper in this recipe as pepper makes the active ingredient in turmeric 2000% more bioavailable. I love fun facts like that!
Creamy Turmeric Dressing (dairy free)
Whisk everything together in a small bowl until creamy smooth. Store in an air tight glass jar in fridge for up to 5 days.
* I prefer the taste of toasted tahini. I find the flavor is better than using a raw tahini.
** If dressing thickens in fridge, simply whisk in a small amount of water to thin out to desired consistency.
