Spiced Roast Butternut Soup with a Tahini Swirl

Spiced Roast Butternut Soup with a Tahini Swirl

This vegan soup is perfect for fall. The spices add zing and the tahini adds a creaminess and depth of extra flavor that will make this a super satisfying meal. All you need is some crusty bread and you’re all set!

4 tbs olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp Hawaij spice (leave out if you can’t find Hawaij, or sub in a tiny pinch of cumin, cinnamon and turmeric)
1 tsp grated ginger
1 large butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cubed
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
3 to 4 cups vegetable broth
4 tbsp Seed + Mill Organic Tahini
1 tbs toasted sesame seeds (we used a mix of black and white seeds but either are fine!)
Pinch of salt and pepper

1. Pre-heat oven to 375F.
2. Place cubed butternut on parchment lined baking tray and drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle over the Hawaij spice and a pinch of salt. Roast for 45 minutes until butternut is golden and starting to caramelize.
3. While butternut is roasting, heat 2 tbs olive oil in a large pot, add onion and sauté until onion is translucent. Add garlic, ginger and sauté for an additional 2 minutes until soft (careful not to burn the garlic). Set aside until butternut is roasted.
4. Add butternut to pot and stir to combine. Then, add 3 cups of the broth and bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to a simmer for 10 minutes.
5. Allow soup to cool slightly and transfer to a blender or use an immersion blender and blend until smooth. Add up to one additional cup of broth to achieve the consistency you like. Adjust seasoning.
6. Swirl 1 tbs tahini into each bowl just before serving, add a sprinkle of sesame seeds and crusty bread!

Tahini Milk Chocolate Bars
Tahini Milk Chocolate Bars

This recipe comes from Jessie Sheehan's new book Snackable Bakes, which we cannot wait to bake our way through!

"These are a take on my MIL’s Oh Henry!® bars, a fantastically chewy and flavorful bar cookie, that gives off plenty of the caramel/peanut/chocolate vibes of the actual candy. That is due to a slightly nutty oat base that is briefly cooked on the stovetop, baked, and then topped with a chocolate glaze. They were on regular rotation when my husband was growing up and I’m still jealous about that. Here, I’ve given them a little tahini makeover (usually they call for peanut butter) and I’m pretty darn excited about it."

We had a lot of fun making these skewers with the vegan kelp “meat” made by our friends at Akua! Anything that involves a grill, warm weather, good company and delicious whole ingredient food is going to keep us happy!  

We paired these skewers with a vibrant, herby tahini sauce that is perfect as a skewer dipping, drizzle sauce, salad dressing or crudite dip!
