A New Tahini For Me & You

by HEAB on March 30, 2011

Last week, I received samples of tahini and almond butter from Eden Nuts.


Sadly, the Almondie Almond Butter will have to wait until after Lent, but the tahini? Well, let’s just say that the jar is almost gone. I’ve been eating it with my bowls of oat bran and unsweetened chocolate as well as atop the following dishes. (Again, please excuse cell phone photos. New camera just arrived, but I haven’t had a chance to open it yet.)


Oven baked sweet potato topped with refried beans and Max Sesame Tahini Spread cheeze sauce (tahini + nutritional yeast + water).

Warning: Weird HEAB combo ahead…although, I guess the one above was kind of weird as well. 😉


Scrambled eggs stirred together with canned pumpkin, topped with crumbled bacon and Max Tahini.

We normally buy the Joyva brand in bulk from Amazon. The Max Tahini tastes sweeter and not quite as bitter. However, it’s also much thicker, and I prefer my tahini on the runnier side. So, although the Max doesn’t drizzle very well, the taste totally makes up for it. It’s also the only tahini on the market made using raw, sprouted, whole, un-hulled, USDA Certified Organically-grown sesame seeds. Check out the nutrition stats:
