Fruitful Overnight Oats with Tahini Drizzle

Fruitful Overnight Oats with Tahini Drizzle

Welcome to your new favorite weekend breakfast recipe! We love topping overnight oats with fruit, as well as incorporating it into the base recipe. The fruit adds extra crunch, flavor, nutrition and, of course, beauty to your bowl (ie, perfect for entertaining or fulfilling your inner food stylist!). The final drizzle of tahini is a wonderful balance to the acidity of the fruit and makes it extra creamy. 

You may also recognize this recipe as Bircher Muesli, which is what our founder, Rachel, calls it. She often makes a double batch for her family on Sunday nights, so that breakfast is sorted for the rest of the week.   
 
INGREDIENTS
2 c old fashioned rolled oats
½ c coconut water
½ c unsweetened apple juice (use water if you prefer to keep it less sweet)
2 apples grated on a box grater (unripe pears, green mangoes or quince also work)
Juice ½ lemon
½ c Greek yogurt (plant based yogurts work well here too!)
2 tbsp Seed + Mill Organic Tahinifor drizzling
Extra seasonal fruit to serve (figs, kumquats and edible flowers all look so pretty!) 

STEPS
1. Place oats, apple, apple juice, coconut water, lemon juice in a covered bowl (at least 2 hours, but preferably overnight).
2. When ready to serve, mix through the yogurt and spoon into serving bowls.
3. Serve with with extra fruit and tahini drizzled over the top.

Serves 4 and will last up to 3 days in the fridge

Creamy Vegan Shepherd's Pie
Creamy Vegan Shepherd's Pie

 As far as cozy winter food goes, it's hard to beat a Shepherd's Pie. It's hearty and warming, perfect for the days when the sun sets at 5 and it's too cold to leave the house. As much as we enjoy the traditional version, we also love a plant based option, using lentils in place of ground meat. The tahini is a great substitute here for butter in the mashed potato topping, and adds a rich, creaminess to the filling. Our founder, Rachel's husband and kids enjoyed this dish for dinner the day we shot this picture and gave it a big unanimous thumbs up!

Gena Hamshaw's Broccoli Tahini Pesto Pasta
Gena Hamshaw's Broccoli Tahini Pesto Pasta

"I usually toss cooked vegetables into my dinner pastas for added fiber and nutrition. This recipe--which calls for an entire head of cooked broccoli--takes that effort to a whole new level. Half of the broccoli gets chopped and added to the pasta, while the remaining half is pureed into a bright green, tahini-based pesto. The creamy texture of this pesto gives more body to the finished recipe than an oil-based pesto would. Untraditional as it is, it has become by favorite pesto for using in pasta dishes."
