Running out of Tahini = Unhappy Coco 😦
so, what to do? It’s just sesame seeds right? It can’t be hard to make my own (I thought). I had toasted sesame seeds and olive oil, did some google search and ready to make my own tahini
I used 2 cups of sesame seeds + 1/4 cup olive oil
blend blend blend, just like any other nut butter
5 min later, oil was released and “tahini” was ready
put into a nice container and SERVE 😉
but…. one moment!!! What about the taste? okay…. I took a spoon and tasted it… IT’S REALLY BAD!!! It tastes nothing like tahini. I think the problem was the sesame seeds were too roasted.. or smoked 😦 Very unhappy with my attempt but I won’t punish myself by eating it, so I just throw the whole bottle.
Unhappy X 2, so what to do? Make something that I’m sure I’ll like therefore I can be happy! Dairy-free chocolate mousse is BACK!
I thought I only needed 3 ingredients at first: silken tofu (half block), cocoa powder (3 tbsp) and coconut oil (1-2 tbsp) to help to solidify
after putting them into the blender I realized that I also needed some form of liquid, so added about 1/4 cup of silk
tasted it… too bitter! So add 3 tbsp of sugar (yeah~ the real thing)
Blend again and put them into a small serving container like these
Who needs to buy artificial Jello if you can make these at home? 😉 I promise, they’re really really good.
I finally roasted the lamb that I had marinated for 3 days 😯 (I kept forgetting), used them as topping on a bed of spinach, celery and tomato. No dressing for the salad was needed because the remaining marinate and lamb’s fat combined was tasty enough.
My belly felt loaded after this so I had two bags of tea to help digestion 😉
This is my favorite herbal mix tea (brought from Argentina).
