Here's a simply delicious smooth and creamy sesame honey spread for your toast, or for dipping (try pita bread chunks, dates or banana slices). Ingredient quantities are estimates, adjust to your tastes. Inspired by breakfast at Café Shosh (the old one, on Rechov Ha-Palmach) in Jerusalem, where on a single plate you’d get eggs made to order, chopped tomato & cucumber salad, yogurt, toast, jam, and a lovely honeyed tahini spread. From Sweet Amandine. Enjoy! Per Wikipedia: Tahini is an excellent source of copper, manganese and the amino acid methionine, and a source of the healthy fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6. Tahini's relatively high levels of calcium and protein make it a useful addition to vegetarian and vegan diets, as well as to raw food diets when eaten in its unroasted form. Tahini made from raw sesame seeds is lower in fat than tahini made from roasted seeds. Compared to peanut butter, tahini has higher levels of fiber and calcium and lower levels of sugar and saturated fats.
