TahiniĀ Toast

March 21, 2014
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

Review
I like to say I'm a lazy iron chef (I just cook with what I have around), renegade nutritionist, food policy wonk, and inveterate butter and cream enthusiast! My husband and I own a craft distillery in Northern Minnesota called Vikre Distillery (www.vikredistillery.com), where I claimed the title, "arbiter of taste." I also have a doctorate in food policy, for which I studied the changes in diet and health of new immigrants after they come to the United States. I myself am a Norwegian-American dual citizen. So I have a lot of Scandinavian pride, which especially shines through in my cooking on special holidays. Beyond loving all facets of food, I'm a Renaissance woman (translation: bad at focusing), dabbling in a variety of artistic and scientific endeavors.
