We’re all in when it comes to new flavors, new ingredients and, why not, healthy ones. And rightfully, most desserts are not any of that. Sharon Brenner from Records In The Den though presents tahini in a whole lot of different way than we’re used to. Mix it up with dates, flax seed and sesame seeds and almost instantly you have yourself a treat!
