Tahini Toast


I kick start my morning with a glass of water. Recently, I purchased  India's first natural spring water called Mulshi Springs and I really like the glass bottle...so much better than the packed plastics ones...
Morning tea is also important to me and my hubby. We can keep pouring ourselves pots and pots of tea all day long :)
It is always good to start your day with a well balanced healthy diet by supplementing your breakfast with some fruits and nuts; even if you are in a morning rush. Statics show that people who skip their breakfast are grumpy and irritable. So what are you waiting for...start your day with an easy to prepare Tahini Toast :)



for tahini
3 cups sesame
1 cup olive oil

Roast the sesame seeds until light brown. Allow it to cool.
Pour sesame seeds into food processor and add oil. Blend for 2 minutes. Check for consistency. The mixture should be thick, yet pourable. Add more oil and blend until desired consistency.Makes about 2 cups of tahini.
Tahini can be stored in the refrigerator in a tightly closed container for a month.



for toast (2 piece of bread per serving)
2 slice wheat bread/multi grain bread (any bread of your choice)
2tsp of tahini
1tsp ground cinnamon powder
1tsp honey or agave nectar (you can add more according to your taste)

Combine tahini, cinnamon and honey/agave nectar. Toast the bread. Spread the tahini mixture over the toast while still warm.

Enjoy the toast with a nice cup of hot tea or have it on the go :)

This is my submission to this month's SOS Challenge - Sesame hosted by Ricki from Diet, Dessert and Dogs and Kim from Affairs of Living and to Breakfast Club # 5 - Bread hosted by Helen from Fuss Free Flavours and Sarah from fingers and toes.

  3. Believe it or not, I've never thought to have tahini "straight up" on toast! But why not, it's a seed butter just like any other, right? Your toasts look delicious. And homemade tahini--wow, that is impressive. :)

    Thanks for another great submission to the SOS Challenge!
