  • Medium-sized bowl
  • Whisk or spoon to stir


  • 1/2 cup hulled tahini
  • 3 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp white miso
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2-3 Tbsp water or enough to make the dressing pourable
  • 1 Tbsp ginger peeled and grated
  • 1 small clove garlic crushed
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • Pinch salt


  • Add the miso, tahini, ginger and garlic to a bowl and mix well to combine
  • Next add in the lemon juice, maple syrup, sesame oil, 2 tablespoons of water and salt then whisk it all together until it reaches your desired consistency. If you find the dressing is still not pourable - add in the extra tablespoon of water and mix again.
  • To serve, pour over salads, or roasted vegetables. It's also a great match for slow roasted meats.
  • This will keep in the fridge for a week or two.


If you've made some previously, you could use garlic miso in place of the white miso. If you do, just leave out the garlic clove in the recipe because you won't need it.
You can continue to add water until you get the consistency of dressing you desire but taste as you go to ensure you don't water it down significantly.
