Toasted Tahini and Almond Butter Sandwich with Pears and Apples

By • September 25, 2010 • 4 Comments



Author Notes: As a kid, I loved peanut butter and jelly on toast, so I created this by taking everything a step further. I started with some raisin bread, added tahini to one side, almond butter to the other and a bit of mascarpone on top. Then, in keeping with a common trend here lately, I browned up some butter and tossed in fresh slices of apples and pears and popped it onto my panini maker. Don't let the toasted part worry you, I let the sandwich cool for a couple of hours and it held it's wonderful flavors fine! TiggyBee

Serves 1

  • 2 Slices of your favorite bread
  • Tahini
  • Almond butter
  • Honey - (optional)
  • Mascarpone
  • Sliced apple
  • Sliced pear
  • Butter for browning
  1. Spread the tahini on one side of the bread (If desired, put a bit of honey on top of the tahini). Spread the almond butter on the other piece of bread and put a layer of mascarpone on top of that.
  2. In a sauté pan, brown the butter and add the apple and pear slices and sauté them for about a minute, so they're still crisp. Remove them from pan and let cool before adding them to the bread.
  3. Once the sandwich is assembled, plop it onto the panini grill or if you don't have a panini maker, simply grill it in a pan.

I love almond butter, tahini and mascarpone, so I'm sure this is great. It might also work well with fresh goat cheese as an alternate to the mascarpone.
