I love this little side dish!
The fact that the name of the salad is the same as the funny little grumpy parrot in Lion King certainly peaked my interest when I found this recipe!
I served this as a lunch, along with vegetarian sausaged, and it worked a treat!
Zazou Carrot Salad
3-5 carrots, grated
1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
3/4 cup tahini (I used the light tahini)
1 1/4 cup water
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tbsp sesame seed oil
2 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
2 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)
- Start by mixing the tahini and water, followed by garlic, lemon, sesame oil, soy sauce and the nutritional yeast (if using), then stir in the carrot and parsley.
- Serve as a side to a main meal, or as a lighter bite along with some vegetarian sausages!
