3 Delicious Recipes that Are perfect for a Sunny Tahini Day


If you can't wait for the sun to shine in the summertime, you should check out my blog post. Here is a list of 5 things to do on a sunny tahini day.


Did you know that Tahini is from sesame seeds? It is made by pressing the seeds and using them as an ingredient in different foods. This post will focus on doing activities with Tahini on a sunny day. Tahini is used in many ways, from being in tahini toast to being used as dips for bread or vegetables and sauces for pasta or rice. It can also be used as a spread on sandwiches, especially for falafel!


Summer is in full swing, and with the gorgeous weather comes an opportunity to make all of your favorite vegan meals and treats. But what if you want something a little different? Maybe you're sick of eating salads for dinner every night, or you want to take advantage of the beautiful weather. Maybe now that we can enjoy a sunny day all year round, you'd prefer to make some sunshine-y treats with some tahini on hand!


Mix it up with other smoothie ingredients

One of the FUN ways to enjoy a Sunny Tahini Day is a Pizza with no guilt!

Here is a healthy version of pizza. Delicious and easy to prepare.


Ingredients


Method

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lines a baking sheet with foil, or cooking spray. Slice off the top and bottom of the eggplant, then slice into 1/2-inch horizontal wedge. Lay out each flat piece on a baking sheet and lightly season with sea salt. Bake for 20 minutes. Carefully remove from oven and flip over each slice. Continue baking for 5-10 minutes, until browned at the edges. Use a spatula to transport each slice to a platter. Drizzle with tahini and sprinkle with the remaining ingredients. Dive in!


Earthy Roasted Beets with Tahini and Capers


Let the beets drop! We love earthy sweet beets. Beets are an excellent source of iron and fiber. Sesames are an ideal source of plant protein, healthy fat, and calcium! Together they make a colorful side dish that will leave you energized and satisfied.


Ingredients

  • 4 medium beetroots

  • 4 tbsp capers

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 4 tbsp FUN Sesames Tahini

  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Method

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Rinse beets and then wrap each beet completely up in foil. Place on a baking sheet and bake for anywhere from 45-90 minutes, depending on the size of the beet. Remove from the oven when thoroughly cooked. Beets are ready when you can easily pierce them with a fork. Allow beets to cool and carefully transfer them to a cutting board. Slice the root end and top of the beet. Using a kitchen towel, or paper towel, rub the skin from the beet. It should easily come off. Discard. Slice each beet into ¼ inch medallions. Then toss in a bowl with 1 tbsp of olive oil, capers, salt, and pepper.

Plate and drizzle with tahini or leave it out in a separate bowl and allow guests to drizzle over their dish, individually. Perfect on a Sunny Tahini Day!


There you have it! Recipes that are easy to prepare and deliciously healthy!
