Tahini, Pistachio & Feta Dip

Tahini, Pistachio & Feta Dip

The recipe from this dip was inspired by one of our favorite dishes at Shuka, a Middle Eastern restaurant in New York, led by one of our all time foodie crushes, Chef Ayesha Nurdjaja. We made this for a crudite board at a BBQ this week and every single guest emailed afterwards asking for the recipe, so here is our version! Watch us make it on Youtube and Reels

INGREDIENTS
1 c pistachios 
½ c Seed + Mill Organic Tahiniwe love using our Roasted Garlic Tahini for this
1 garlic clove, omit if you're using the garlic tahini
Juice of 1 lemon
½ c feta 
¼ c olive oil 
1 bunch cilantro
½ shallot 
Salt & pepper, to taste

STEPS

  1. Blend everything together in your food processor until you like the consistency-- we prefer it slightly chunky. But, if it's too sticky in the blender, we usually add in a little bit of water to thin it out.  
  2. Sprinkle with chili flakes, drizzle of extra olive oil, pepper!

    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."
