Miso Tahini Dressing

  • Author: Deryn Macey
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 cup 1x
  • Category: Sauce
  • Cuisine: Vegan


This deliciously addictive sauce is easy to make and perfect on bowls, salads and drizzled over roasted veggies.


  • 5 tbsp (75 g) tahini
  • 1 tbsp (16 g) white miso paste
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce, coconut aminos or gluten-free tamari
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • pinch of salt
  • 46 tbsp water


  1. Add all ingredients, starting with 4 tbsp of water to a blender or (use an immersion blender in something like a shaker cup) and process until smooth and creamy. 
  2. Add more water 1 tbsp at a time to reach your desired consistency. How much you use will depend on how thick your tahini is. I usually use about 5 tbsp of water.
  3. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days. It does thicken up a bit after sitting in the fridge but you can always thin it out again with more water.


If you don’t have a blender or means to process this dressing, replace the garlic with 1 tsp of garlic powder and mix all the ingredient together in a bowl or container until smooth and creamy.
