We’ve all had tahini. I hope.
Actually, that might not be true. Because I just asked my honey if he knew what tahini was and he said no. Seeing that it came from a can mildly traumatized him. I guess I’ve rubbed off on him. Regardless, tahini is obsessively good. Like so good that you might eat it out of the can by the spoonful. Yes, my favorite brand of tahini, Joyva, comes from a can and I don’t care at all.
We’re used to tahini sauce made with lemon and garlic. But there’s a lot more potential to that base. Herb sauces like salsa verde and chimichurri also frequent my rotation, so what would we get if we combined the two? Green tahini.
I love this sauce because you can use up the precious, shriveling herbs that are hanging out in your crisper box. All you’re going to be doing is blending them up with the sesame seed paste, lemon, and garlic.
Use it liberally on fish, grilled meats, vegetables, or my favorite, spiced meatballs. Be assured that the final product will not have come from a can.
We cannot make sustainable change with food, our bodies, or our surrounding habits until we honestly explore and get curious about our relationship with each of them. Mindset change is not easy, but so, so worth it.
Being healthy starts with learning to cook simple foods in easy, delicious ways with approachable and practical recipes and techniques.
Our health begins with properly nourishing our bodies with nutrient-dense foods. I believe in bio-individuality: each person requires different types and amounts of food to feel their best. Learn how to eat intuitively for the rest of your life!
