Green Beans with Creamy Turmeric Dressing

When & How

This side goes well with everything! Below are some of my favorite lunch and dinner combos. 

Lunch: with pan-seared salmon and brown rice

Dinner: simply with stir-fried wild rice in evo oil and chili flakes


(2 servings)

40g tahini

2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

½ tsp fresh lemon juice (optional)

1/3 tsp turmeric powder

Fresh black pepper

Green beans



  1. Steam or boil green beans until soft (not mushy).
  2. For the dressing, whisk all the ingredients in a bowl until creamy smooth.
  3. (Optional, but recommended) preheat some olive oil into a skillet over medium heat and pan-sear green beans for approx. 3 mins
  4. Toss green beans with the dressing (see “When & How” to find out the perfect functional combo) 



A good source of vitamin K, vitamin C, and vitamin B6.


Rich in calcium, phytoestrogens, and healthy fats, it helps with hormonal balance, prevents hair loss, and sustains bone health.




Turmeric is considered the most potent anti-inflammatory spice. But don’t forget black pepper! Black pepper is necessary to activate curcumin, the beneficial component of turmeric. Without black pepper, our body can absorb only about 10% of the benefits.
