It took me a while to decide what to name this tahini recipe.
I wanted to come up with something cool and catchy to get your interest right at the get-go. But then I realized something. We probably only ever need one tahini recipe up our collective sleeves at any given time, especially if it yields The Perfect Tahini. And this one is just that; perfect the way it is. No muss, no fuss.
I love buying fresh bunches of carrots from the farmers market, but sometimes it’s tough figuring out what to do with all those greens. Some vendors will offer to remove them for you before you take your bunch of carrots home (I really can’t believe this is a thing), but don’t let them! This carrot green pesto makes an absolutely wonderful substitute for its more traditional cousin, basil pesto.
The humble black bean has been the most versatile staple food in our pantry these days. Tiny in size in its dried form, the little legume cooks up plump and perfectly creamy on the inside with a bit of chew to the skin on the outside. I cook my black beans low and slow in the oven (or on the stovetop) in the largest, heaviest pot I’ve got; my dutch oven. I have a big orange 6-quart’er which I’ve nicknamed The Pumpkin. Cheers for creativity and for naming cookware!
Hi guys. So, if you’re a fan of free things, then you and I have something in common. It’s both easy and cost-effective to make your own vegetable broth at home. Not just cost-effective. This homemade vegetable broth is virtually free. AKA you are not buying any special ingredients for it. I mean you can if you want to, but you absolutely don’t have to. It will still come out amazing every time.
Homemade coconut milk is pure unadulterated coconut flavor. As close to “straight from the source” as you can get without having to crack open a fresh coconut multiple times per week to get your fill.
Hey, I’m a small girl, I justcan’t handle cracking a coconut on a regular basis. Have you tried it? It’s TOUGH. (Oh, I do recommend it, though, because fresh coconut pulp is wondrous and the coconut water is even better.) If you ever see it on the menu at a Thai food restaurant –> order it.
Back to the topic at hand. It took me too long to discover this but I am on the homemade-coconut-milk-bandwagon 100% all the way! It’s by far the creamiest, most delicious, plant-based non-dairy milk ever. Woof, that’s a mouthful.
