One of the most common things that people crave during the raw vegan diet, besides hot food, is the ability to use condiments freely. Because you cannot reach into the pantry or fridge to pull out your favorite hot sauce, ketchup, or other condiment, you have to make your own. If you make your own condiments, not only are they much healthier, but they also taste better.
That’s how we feel about this spicy tahini sauce, which exhibits bold and spicy flavors. It works great as a dip for raw vegetables, salad dressing (if you can handle the heat), and even a sauce for raw vegan tacos. Plus, this sauce is gluten-free, dairy-free, and 100% raw vegan, making it a great option for people with dietary restrictions. This tahini sauce only contains six ingredients, and none of them are processed. Unlike a bottled hot sauce, this sauce does not contain unhealthy fats, artificial flavors, or dyes.
Because this sauce is so versatile, you can use it several different ways, which is critical on a raw vegan diet. For example, drizzle it over zucchini noodles to make a spicy zoodle pasta. Add a little more water if you want to use it as an oil-free salad dressing. If you want to alter the spices, it can transform into a raw tahini Caesar dressing. There is truly no limit to what you can do with this condiment!
