Ingredients

 ½ cup carrot (cut in discs or small chunks)
 1 ½ tbsp tahini

 ¼ tsp salt (optional)
 ½ tbsp organic miso or chickpea or another mellow miso (see Chef’s notes)
 1 tbsp maple syrup
  cup water

Serve, or refrigerate. Will keep about 4–5 days in the fridge.

Chef's Notes

Ginger
Fresh ginger has a better flavor than dried. Buy a few knobs, and keep it in your refrigerator. Then, for this recipe, simply trim away the peel and chop a small amount; you need just a little. It doesn’t have to be finely chopped as the blender will take care of working it through the dressing.

Chickpea Miso
Chickpea miso has a lovely, mild flavor. There are several brands on the market, but you can certainly substitute another mild miso, such as brown rice or barley.

Serving suggestions
In addition to greens, this dressing fabulous worked into quinoa or another whole grain (like millet, buckwheat, brown rice).

In the fall/winter, drizzle over freshly cooked grains with fresh veggies for a warming, comforting bowl.

In the summer, use pre-cooked/chilled grains and veg for a cooling summer bowl.
