Tahini stuffed dates

I made this recipe as part of my Veganuary food guide, where I shared with my Instagram community five staple ingredients that you will always find in my pantry.


One of this is tahini, and I left it last as I wanted to end on a sweet note by sharing these tahini-stuffed dates.


Some of us are familiar with tahini, some others are not. Very briefly, tahini is a paste made with ground hulled sesame seeds and it's extremely versatile.


You can use it for savoury recipes, like my Creamy cabbage , it goes well with fresh fruit and anything sweet and, let's not forget that it's one of the main ingredients to make hummus.




INGREDIENTS:

15 pitted dates

10 tsp tahini

70g extra dark chocolate

Crushed hazelnuts





INSTRUCTIONS:

Let’s start by melting the dark chocolate at bain-marie.


Fill each date with about ½ or 1 tsp of tahini, then coat it with dark chocolate and sprinkle with crushed hazelnuts.


Place them in the fridge for 30 minutes then… Enjoy!


*For the filling you can use other nut butters, like peanut, almond or cashew instead of tahini.

For the topping, you can use pistachios, almonds or shredded coconut.
