About this Recipe
This delightful dressing was one of the recipes shared by "The Ladies of the Palate" cooking group to Grandmother's Kitchen. We had not heard this recipe name previously, but in doing a Google search found many bloggers sharing their versions of the Glory Bowl Dressing.
This recipe is not only good with many types of salads, it will also go well poured over steamed vegetables, a rice dish or a chicken satay. Thanks again to this wonderful group of enthusiastic home cooks. Home cooking should be fun and when you share successful recipes that taste amazing, it makes it worthwhile to do some good home cooking!
1. Here is a little tip on cleaning the food processor. Before you dismantle it, you can put a bit of warm water and soap into the processor. Turn it on and run for a few seconds, then, take apart and submerge into the sink for final cleaning.
2. Be mindful of the potency and size of the garlic clove you use in the recipe.
3. Anytime you make dressing, make sure you like the flavor of the oil you use.
Makes approx. 2 cups
1/2 cup nutritional yeast flakes
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup tamari soy
2 cloves garlic
1 1/2 cup good quality oil (avocado, peanut, grape)
4 Tablespoons tahini paste
1. Place all the ingredients into a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. If the dressing is too thick you can add a small amount of water.
2. Transfer to a glass container with a lid that seals and refrigerate. Use as needed.
What is Tahini paste and how to make your own?
Tahini paste is made from toasted sesame seeds that are ground up with olive oil to produce a paste. Tahini is used to make hummus and it is also popular to serve with Falafels, is served with Asian noodle dishes, and is common in Middle Eastern recipes in sauces used on meats and vegetables.
It is cheaper to make your own tahini paste than to buy it premade in a jar plus you can make small amounts.
1. If you are using raw sesame seeds, you will first need to toast them to a light brown color first. If you have toasted sesame seeds you can skip this step.
2. A cast iron skillet or a heavy duty skillet on medium to low heat works best as they retain the heat. Do be mindful as the sesame seeds can burn very easily so keep an eye on them and stir frequently while toasting them up.
3. Once you have browned the sesame seeds let them cool.
4. Next just put the cooled seeds into a food processor and have a ratio of 1 cup sesame seeds to 1 Tablespoon olive oil. (Or more if you like but keep the ratio 1-1)
5. Choose an olive oil you like the flavor of as if you don't like the olive oil taste, you are not going to like the tahini you make.
Blend the two ingredients until it is a thick-ish, but pour-able consistency. Transfer to a glass jar with a lid and keep refrigerated.
