Chocolate-tahini timbales from John Shuldiner’s Pure Vegan! The recipe is featured in the Guardian, presumably as part of England’s National Vegetarian Week, or maybe just because it looks awesome! I love unexpected ingredients. Celine has a bunch of tahini desserts that are way tasty as well. These little timbales, though, they’re so pretty and fancy! Let’s have a party and pass these around on trays!

Make this: Slate’s peanut butter hummus! »
My ma sent me this recipe from Slate last week, all excited, and honestly, I was skeptical. Hummus with peanut butter? Nonsense.
But the author does make an excellent point about peanut butter being more affordable than tahini, and I also feel like smoked paprika is a genius ingredient from heaven, and beyond everything else hummus is way super-easy to make, so why not?
Results: Delicious, slightly pinkish-brownish, rich, creamy, tasty hummus. Highly recommended. You probably have all the ingredients right now! If you don’t have smoked paprika, get some immediately: It’s inexpensive and adds a dimension of taste to your foods you’ll hate yourself for missing.
Peanut butter hummus! It’s what’s for EVERY MEAL FOREVER.
