5 Ingredient Vegan Almond And Tahini Cookies

Tahini is not only wonderful in savoury sauces and dips but absolutely divine in baking. There is something truly more-ish about a sweet, baked, sesame treat. It is chewy (due to the fluid stretchy nature of tahini) and crumbly (due to almond meal) all at once. An almond and tahini cookie that requires only 5 ingredients and 15 minutes to make. And one you need to make weekly if you want to snack better at 3pm and reap the health benefits of tahi... Read More >>
Roasted Cauliflower Hummus - Cook Republic

Roasted Cauliflower Hummus

About four years ago, our local market got a new stall. A lovely Persian man selling the most divine Middle-Eastern dips.

Super Green Falafel With Turmeric Tahini Sauce

I have been baking falafels for a very long time. But every time I have a "real" falafel at a Middle Eastern eatery, you know the authentic fried version, I am overcome with an urge to try it at home. Frying is a fine art, just like baking. There are a lot of variables involved, the right heat and maintaining it a true challenge for many. I developed this recipe over several weeks, frying batch after batch, adjusting the mix so it won't fall ... Read More >>
