Diaspora Chilli Tahini-Cashew Sauce

healthy spicy tahini cashew butter sauce

This recipe comes to us from our friend Leesa Morales, founder of Purposeful Plate.

 This thick, creamy sauce using Ground Up’s limited-edition Spicy Tahini-Cashew with Diaspora Chillies is bursting with flavor, and I especially love it drizzled over wild salmon with roasted veggies and quinoa. Mix and match with your favorite protein, grain, and veggie combo! You can dress it up with your favorite garnishes. Hot tip: make a double batch dip fresh sliced veggies into it whenever you need a quick, satisfying (fiber, protein, and fat-rich) snack.

Makes 1 large, or 2 small servings:



  1.  Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl.
  2. Taste, and adjust seasoning, as desired.
  3. For a thinner, dressing-like consistency, stir in an extra tablespoon of olive oil.

Swaps & Modifications:

  • Don’t have apple cider vinegar? Try lime juice.
  • Don’t have the Diaspora Chili Tahini-Cashew flavor on hand? Use the Chunky Almond, Cashew & Coconut, and stir in 1/8th tsp cayenne pepper.
  • Don’t have extra virgin olive oil? Try another mild-flavored oil, like sunflower or avocado.
