Fall Cooking: Tahini and Fenugreek Sauce
I made this dip or sauce for you guys to try!! So good!!! No salt added and no soy and naturally Gluten Free! Also, I always use Organic Ingredients. You don’t want to be consuming pesticides.
I will be touching a little bit on the benefits of Fenugreek, in another post. There I will be giving you more in depth, the miraculous properties this beautiful herb has.
According to the USDA FoodData Central, fenugreek contains a variety of beneficial nutrients, including iron, magnesium, manganese, and copper, as well as vitamin B6, protein, and dietary fiber. It also contains antioxidants, powerful phytonutrients, including choline, trigonelline, yamogenin, gitogenin, diosgenin, tigogenin, and neotigogens. Most of the health benefits of fenugreek are due to the presence of saponins and fibers in it.

Tahini is a Middle Eastern condiment made from ground hulled sesame seeds. When it comes to nutrition, tahini is rich in beneficial fatty acids, including omega-3 and omega-6, as well as good amounts of protein, potassium, manganese, calcium, iron, sodium and dietary fiber. In a single tablespoon, you will get nearly 90 calories, 12% of your fat intake for the day, but most of that will be monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. There is also a good amount of fiber in tahini, roughly 5% of your daily requirement in each tablespoon. The sesame seed paste is relatively lower in carbohydrates (1%), making it a high-protein, low-carbohydrate source for vegetarians.
The primary health benefits of tahini include its effects on hormonal balance, iron absorption, skin tone, bone mineral density and muscle tone, among others.
One tablespoon (11.1 grams) of tahini sauce contains the following:

LEMON w/ SKIN
Lemon with peel contains even more vitamins, nutrients, and health benefits than the lemon juice. Lemon peels contain about 5 to 10 times more vitamins than lemon juice. Remember, organic will be your best when consuming the peel to avoid eating any pesticides.

CHIC PEA/MISO MASTER
I am allergic to soy and love the the benefits of Miso Master Organic Chickpea Miso. It also has less salt and more rice koji (rice innoculated with aspergillus spores) than traditional misos.
Reducing the salt speeds up fermentation, while increasing the grain content makes more starch available to turn to sugar, producing a milder miso.
Because there is still abundant food for the lactobacillus bacteria at the end of the cycle, these bacteria are both much more numerous and more active than in Long-Term Misos. Miso Master Organic Chickpea Miso, therefore, gives a much more powerful dose of these vital probiotic bacteria essential for proper functioning of the digestive system, in many ways acting like non-dairy yogurt.
Two tablespoons contains approximately the following:
