INGREDIENTS
 
1 lb Smallhold Blue Oysters
2 tbs Burlap & Barrel's Black Urfa Chili
4-5 tbs olive oil
1 jalapeño
Bunch of cilantro
1/4 c lime juice
1/2 c Seed + Mill Organic Tahini (and 1-2 extra tbs tahini optional)
1/2 c water (and 2-3 extra tbs water optional)
1 garlic clove
Salt and pepper

STEPS
1. For the mushrooms: preheat grill until hot.
2. Toss 1 lb freshly harvested blue oysters in a bowl with 2 tbs black urfa chili, pinch of salt and 4-5 tbs olive oil, until well coated.
3. Grill mushrooms for 5-6 minutes until slightly crispy on the edges (turn half way).
4. For the Tahini Sauce: place 1 jalapeño on the grill until slightly charred (2-3 mins), remove seeds and set aside.
5. Blanch a bunch of cilantro (stems and leaves) in hot water until wilted, discard hot water.
6. Place jalapeño, 1/4 c lime juice, ½ c tahini, ½ c water, blanched cilantro, 2 tbs olive oil, 1 garlic clove, salt & pepper (to taste) in a food processor and blend until smooth.
7. Add 2-3 tbs more water if too thick, or 1-2 tbs more tahini if too thin, and keep blending until you are happy with the consistency.
8. Sauce can be made a day ahead and kept refrigerated. It's also great as a dip or salad dressing.
9. To assemble: smear tahini sauce over a soft tortilla, add the spicy mushrooms and devour warm!

Pavlova is undoubtedly one of our favorite desserts (Rachel, our co-founder, being from Australia, and all……) but it’s also one of those dishes that no matter how closely we follow the recipe, something always seems to go wrong! We were determined to master the art of pavlova, and give it a Seed + Mill twist!

This recipe is inspired by Ana Sortun and Maura Kilpatrick from our favorite Boston bakery, Sofra. The tahini-forward shortbread is heavenly on its own, but we love the festive touch of gooey chocolate thumbprints and sparkly flaky salt. Plus, who doesn't love a fun, hands on holiday baking project?
