Chef Tips

If you suffer from tree nut allergies, consider substituting sunflower seed butter for the tahini. Sesame, although not a tree nut, can affect those with tree nut allergies.

Squeeze out the insides of the roasted garlic cloves to chop them. You can roast a whole head of garlic and keep the peeled, or rather squeezed out cloves under oil in the fridge in a clean non-reactive jar or container.
