Jenna’s Tahini- Tamari Salad Dressing

During my Dharma Yoga Teacher training, one of my fellow yogis, Jenna Pacelli, gave me a wonderful “satvic” salad dressing recipe. Enjoy on your Superfoods Salad.

Shake up:

1 tablespoon of unhulled tahini

splash of tamari (we were using Braggs- if you can find it)

olive oil



Thanks Jenna:

Chickpea and Cashewnut burger

Not at all satvic- with the flour, onions and garlic to taste, but a family favorite.

serves 4.


small brown onion
1 garlic clove
1 small sweet potato-  (maybe around 120 grammes)- i normally bake sweet potatoes for the kids, so use a pre-baked one.
1/2 cup cashews- ground
cup of chickpeas- soaked overnight then boiled to soften
1/2 cup of oats
wholegrain bread crumbs (of one slice of bread)
couple of tablespoons of flour of choice (wholemeal/ spelt/ corn etc)

fry onions, garlic then add sweet potato. When softened and cooked, blend with the softened chickpeas, cashews; oats; breadcrumbs and flour.

From here it’s quite easy to make burger patties. Flatten them out so they are about 1.5 cms thick

Fry the patties in a grill pan with a little oil

Pop in your bread bun of choice, or eat alone, with salad garnishes as you wish.


(Sometimes, if i have extra veges in the fridge that need to be eaten, then i cook them up and throw them in the blend!).

If it wasn’t for the following series of wholistic and organic recipes, I would never have made it. Now i have a handful of options that have seamlessly replaced my old way of eating:
