Lemon Tahini Dressing

Savoury "Dragon Sauce"

This sauce is inspired by a "Dragon Sauce" at a local vegan restaurant in Halifax, Nova Scotia called Wild Leek. They serve a delicious savoury breakfast bowl full of smokey tempeh, roasted potatoes, grilled mushrooms and onions, and steamed kale, all topped with this savoury sauce. This sauce pairs perfectly with nourish bowls and salads, or on top of sandwiches as a spread.
