Halva Fruit Board

Halva Fruit Board

For us, Thanksgiving is all about connecting with family and friends over a warm and cosy meal, around an inviting table. The early start allows us to slow down a bit and enjoy long lingering conversations, preferably over a sweet charcuterie board, preferably including some slices of halva!  There are no rules here, just go for the flavors, textures, colors that you love. What we especially like about this board is the combination of sweet and savory elements!  

INGREDIENTS
½ lb Seed + Mill Halva (we chose Pistachio, but all flavors work!)
Selection of fruit (we used grapes, clementines, pear slices, pomegranate and gooseberries, but any kind of fresh or dried fruit will work!)
Chocolate chunks (we like to use shards of Tahini Swirled Dark Chocolate we made with our friends at Raaka!)
Slices of fruit bread
Small pot of Seed + Mill Organic Tahini for dipping the bread and fruit slices

 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."
