Za’atar Baba Ganoush

Za’atar Baba Ganoush

Why not give a traditional Baba Ganoush recipe a twist by substituting regular tahini for our Za’atar Tahini? The earthy, tangy za’atar spice works perfectly with the smoky, burnt eggplant! Making this recipe is a lot simpler than you think - the only thing you need is a bit of time to get the eggplant nice and soft on the inside! 

We also created a version of this recipe by scooping out the left overs of our Deconstructed Baba Ganoush recipe (adding 1 garlic clove) and blending it into a dip that lasts up to a week in the fridge. Photo by @spinachdaddy.

2 medium eggplants
¼ c Organic Za’atar Tahini 
Juice of 1 lemon
2 garlic cloves
½ tsp salt
Freshly ground pepper
Pinch of smoked paprika
2-3 tbs olive oil, with extra to drizzle at the end
For the garnish: finely chopped mint, parsley or dill, plus 2 tbs toasted pine nuts
Pita or crusty bread to serve

1. Place a sheet pan in your oven and preheat to 475°F.
2. Wrap eggplant in foil and roast for an hour. Once ready, the eggplant flesh should be soft on the inside.
3. Once cool, remove the eggplant flesh with a spoon (discarding the burnt skin) and place in a food processor, together with the garlic, lemon juice, tahini, 2 tbs olive oil and salt. Blend until smooth.
4. Place in a serving bowl, sprinkle with parsley, pepper, smoked paprika and an extra drizzle of olive oil. For this image, we also added some toasted pine nuts and dill! 
5. Serve with chopped vegetables and warm torn pita 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!
