3/4 c Seed + Mill Organic Tahini
2 sticks of unsalted butter, softened, plus more for greasing
3 1/2 c almond flour
2 c confectioners' sugar
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tbsp granulated sugar
8 eggs, separated
2 tsp ground matcha
2 tsp ground hibiscus
2 tbsp honey
1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tbsp coconut oil
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease 3 quarter-sheet pans with butter and line with parchment paper. 
2. In a bowl, whisk to combine the almond flour, confectioners' sugar and salt. 
3. In a separate bowl and using an electric hand mixer, beat the butter and granulated sugar until fluffy. Add the egg yolks, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. 
4. With the electric mixer running, slowly add dry ingredients into the wet until batter forms. 
5. In another separate bowl and using clean beaters, beat the egg whites to medium peaks, then fold into the batter. 
6. Divide the batter between 3 bowls. Stir in the matcha into one bowl and stir in the hibiscus into another. Spread each bowl evenly into the prepared pans. Bake until risen and firm, 15 minutes. Let the layers cool and invert onto a cutting board, then peel and discard parchment paper. 
7. In a small bowl, whisk together the tahini with the honey. On one of the sheet pans, place the purple layer. Spread half of the tahini mixture evenly over it, then place the white layer and spread the remaining tahini mixture. Top with the green layer.
8. In a small microwaveable bowl, melt the chocolate chips with the coconut oil. Stir until smooth. Spread half the chocolate layer evenly over the rainbow cookies and refrigerate until firm, 30 minutes.
9. Invert the cookies and spread the remaining chocolate evenly on the bare side. Return to the refrigerator and chill for 30 minutes. 
10. Transfer to a cutting board and trim the edges. Cut into 1 1/2-inch squares. Transfer to a platter and serve.

Makes approx. 35 cookies.

Creamy Vegan Shepherd's Pie
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."
