Yogurty Nooch and Tahini Sauce or Dip

When I put this sauce together to have on my zoodles for lunch the other day, I realized it was a bit different from the others I have made in the past, so I wrote it down and thought I would share it here… it really is a good one.  The combination of Greek yogurt with the nooch (that would be nutritional yeast) and tahini makes for a rich and tasty, very creamy and thick sauce.

It also works very nicely as a dip, which I realized when I poked some baby carrots into the piles of creamy sauce sitting on top of my zoodles.  Lovely. Tasty. Very satisfying.

I added a few snips of thyme and basil from my garden, for garnish, and I noticed that the thyme really takes over the flavor on the bites that had it.  If you don’t care for it, please don’t use it.  Garlic might be a nice addition as well, I think.  And of course you can use any Greek yogurt you like… I happen to prefer fat free.  The N.I. will vary accordingly.
