Bit of a light tea for me tonight. Had a bit too much raw cake…
Cauliflower, red grapes, mange tout, sugar snaps, loads of cherry tomatoes in a tahini, cayenne, sea salt and garlic dressing.
You can get two types of tahini: hulled and unhulled. Unhulled tends to be best as it’s made from the whole sesame seed.
It’s great in savoury dishes but also compliments sweeter flavours too, so it goes great with the grapes. It’s got a tonne of health benefits too!
High in iron so good for preventing anemia.
High protein, higher than most nuts.
It’s rich in minerals like phosphorus, lecithin, magnesium and potassium which are perfect for building strong bones.
It’s also one of the best sources of calcium you can find (which means nothing, by the way, unless you have the above mentioned minerals to go with it).
High in vitamin E and B vitamins.
Easily digestible as it has a high alkaline mineral content. This is also great for assisting in weight loss, as is the abundance of lovely essential fats it contains.
