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 shared halva dessert board!  There are no rules here, just go for the flavors 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 used the tahini truffles we made with Daydream Dessert)
Slices of fruit bread
Small pot of Seed + Mill Organic Tahini for dipping the bread and fruit slices

STEPS
1. Watch our short assembly video here!

Stella Hanan Cohen's Date Walnut Cake with Tahini Cream Cheese Frosting

The frosting for this recipe is especially unique in that it combines tahini with mastic, an indigenous plant based gum grown in Greece. The piney scent of the mastic, together with the earthy tahini cuts through the sweetness of the frosting, giving this cake an indulgent topping that we couldn't stop eating! The mixing bowl was literally licked clean.....

This easy, delicious and healthy recipe comes from our friends Susan Spungen's newsletter, Susanality. It's the perfect low maintenance supper that can be riffed on endlessly with different seasonings and accompaniments, depending on what you have in your pantry. Susan suggests serving it with rice, cooked chickpeas, and raw or pickled cabbage for crunch. We can't wait to add this to our weeknight rotation!
