Author Notes: It's like peanut butter toast...but tahini-er! This is one of my favorite super speedy breakfasts or snacks. I got the idea from Jess, of Sweet Amandine. This isn't so much a recipe as an assembly process, using amounts of everything to suit your taste. The one thing to know is don't omit the salt or the tahini will taste bitter and not nearly as scrumptious as it could be.fiveandspice

Serves 1

  • 1 thick slice of your favorite toasting bread
  • Butter
  • Tahini (sesame paste)
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Honey
  • Flaky sea salt
  1. Toast your bread on a high heat setting just until the outside is browned and crisped but the inside is still soft. Spread the warm bread with a layer of butter.
  2. Spread a good layer of tahini over the bread, sprinkle generously with ground cinnamon and pinches of sea salt and drizzle with plenty of honey. Eat!

This was really good. Paired it with hot peppermint tea. Delicious.

Thanks so much for explaining the effect of salt on tahini. I've been wondering forever why my organic tahini is always bitter.

I think I found my new favourite snack. It's like liquidy halvah on toast. So delicious!

The salt definitely makes this. This is my new favorite snack to snap me out of the 2 o'clock doldrums at work.

Yay! Glad you like it. It does make a perfect snack. It was one of my major pregnancy cravings too, haha.

Try tahini and Tamari or tahini and a little miso on toast as a savoury option. It's fantastic! Top it with sprouts or fresh cucumber- anything really!
