This is a really quick and tasty dip! It takes inspiration from tahini dip and steps it up a notch. Miso and lemon combine to give it a nice tangy kick. It can be eaten as a dip, or diluted a bit for a very yummy salad dressing.

Yield: 2 cups


  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts
  • 1/2 cup cashews, soaked
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbs Namu Shoyu
  • 2 tbs Miso
  • 1 lemon, squeezed
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • filtered water


  • Any veggies of your choice! Cucumbers, carrots, bell pepper, celery…


1) Start with a dry small Vita-Mix pitcher and blend the sesame seeds to a powder (you can use 1/4 cup tahini).

2) Add the remaining ingredients and blend well adding filtered water slowly until you get a desired creamy texture.

3) Serve with Crudités.


Options: Add 1/4 cup Namu Shoyu and a 1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar for a tasty dressing.
