INGREDIENTS 
1/2 c Seed + Mill Organic Tahini
1/2 c (1 stick) butter 
1/4 c sugar 
1 1/4 c brown sugar 
1/2 c chocolate chips
1/2 c Seed + Mill Halva (we like using our Toasted Sesame flavor best, but any flavor will work!)  
1 egg 
1 tsp vanilla 
1 1/3 c flour 
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda 
1 tsp sea salt flakes 


STEPS
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 °F. In a stand mixer, combine butter, tahini, sugar. Turn on to medium speed and beat until smooth. Add egg, vanilla and increase speed, beating until fluffy. Turn off the mixer and add flour, baking soda, baking powder and mix on low speed until combined. Lastly, using a spatula, fold in chocolate chips and halva. 
2. Scoop balls of dough on parchment lined baking sheets and sprinkle sea salt over dough. Bake for 10-14 mins until golden and tops are crackly. We always give the baking sheet a bang on the counter while the cookies are still hot, to increase the crackliness!  


Dough will freeze well for up to 6 months. We ALWAYS make a double batch to keep for next time!

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."
