Halva

IMG_0756 (1)

Ingredients:

250g sesame – organic is best

1-2 tbsp tahini

60ml honey – organic is best; if you like your halva sweeter, you can add more honey

1 tsp good quality vanilla essence

Handful of pistachios (crushed in a mortar)

Method:

Roast the sesame slightly on a dry frying pan, be careful not to burn it or your halva will be bitter in taste. Place the cooled sesame in a blender and blend at high speed into smooth paste – about 10 minutes.

Note:

To prevent blender from overheating you can switch your blender off in every 2-3 minutes.

Add tahini, vanilla and honey to the sesame paste and blend some more until all ingredients are combined. Line a deep dish with cling film, tip the halva out of the blender into the dish, sprinkle the top with crushed pistachios, put in the fridge e voila! Enjoy
