Nourish Bowl with a Maple-Tahini Sauce

Sooooo we may have just discovered our new favourite sauce!!! This stuff tastes like liquid gold and we would be totally content just eating it straight out of the jar. BUT it tastes even better when it's coated over our favourite roasted veggies like sweet potato and cauliflower. In all seriousness, we definitely have been neglecting using tahini as an ingredient for our sauces/dressings. If you're someone who loves a creamy dressing then this maple-tahini sauce is going to be your new best friend.


If you have never had tahini before, it is just sesame seed butter! So not only does it taste amazing, but it's also packed with healthy fats! If you are bored of your usual salad then please do yourself a favour and try out this sauce because it will bring your salad/nourish bowl game to a whole new level.
