The last days of 2014 are becoming increasingly distant but its memories persist vivid in my mind.
It is so good to break routine, to visit places that we don’t know or haven’t visit for a while, to find other environments, different rhythms and especially to taste other flavors...
If on one hand all the pervasive atmosphere of the places where I was is clear in my memory with different flavors, on the other, it reinforced the desire to return to my kitchen and to my comfort food!
Last weekend was spent in a kind of "sleep mode", at home, listening to the rain and to some relaxing music. We had a wonderful leisure time, joking, telling stories around the table, and particularly tasting some appetizing food: I put together some of the ingredients I most appreciate: blueberries and tahini!
Someone once told me that whoever gets lost for a good chocolate, also gets lost for a good portion of tahini ... I don’t know if you share the same opinion or not, but, for me, these two flavors are perfect! I confess that my days would be much more gray without chocolate and a good portion of tahini!
Spreading a whole wheat bread with this sesame paste which has been seasoned with soy sauce and lemon, garnishing the bread with tomato slices and having a hemp and blueberries smoothie, is one way of finding irresistible arguments to enlarge the pleasure to stay at the table with the family and / or friends and forget time ...
½ cup of shelled hemp seeds
1.75 l water
1 cup full of blueberries
Whole wheat bread
3 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp soy sauce
4 tbsp water (the measure depends on the quality of tahin and on desired consistency)
1 tsp lemon juice
Place the water and seeds in a blender and grind well.
Pass through a sieve cloth.
Wash the blueberries and add the milk. Put back into the blender, add the dates and process.
Wash and cut the tomatoes into slices.
Chop the chives.
Toast bread slices.
Mix the soy sauce with the tahini, add the lemon and gradually add the water stirring constantly, until the desired consistency.
Spread the bread with tahini, garnish with lemon slices and sprinkle with chives.
