Eat to Live: Tahini Date Spread

Tahini Date Spread Recipe from Dr. Fuhrman's book EAT TO LIVE recipe sectionI’m up to something new!  I’ve decided I’m going to make and post the recipes from Dr. Fuhrman’s book “Eat to Live” under the “7 Days of Vegetarian Meal Plans (For Aggressive Weight Loss),” that you can find starting on page 240.  When I completed the 6 week plan I didn’t take the time to make many of the recipes in the book, I basically just stuck to the nutritarian guidelines and made what I could within those parameters.  Now, I’m no longer a nutritarian novice and I’m in this for the long haul (not just a quick fix), so I need to take the time to try these recipes out!  I’m so glad I started with Dr. Fuhrman’s Portobello Red Pepper Pita recipe and this amazing tahini spread!

Dr Fuhrman Tahini Date Spread Recipe MyMommaToldMe.comWhen I first snuck a taste of this spread I was immediately in love!  It has a wonderful nutty taste, with just a hint of sweetness from the dates.  It tastes incredible by itself but when you add it with the Portobello Red Pepper Pita it becomes out-of-this-world delicious!

Ingredients for Dr Fuhrman Tahini Date Spread Recipe MyMommaToldMe.comMade with just a few whole ingredients and a high speed blender, you can make a batch of this sauce that will last your dipping and spreading needs for about a week (mine lasted for 2 weeks because I only used it when I made the pita recipe, which BTW we’ve had 4 times in 2 weeks).

      Hi melmoo! So I used a freeze-dried herb blend I found at Sprouts it’s called “LITEHOUSE Salad Herb Blend.” I have also used Trader Joe’s “21 Seasoning Salute” which is salt free! Hope this helps and I can’t wait to know how you like the recipe!

    Hello, I love your blog! Do you know of an onion, garlic, salt-free seasonings? I do not onion or garlic and thinking I probably need to make my own mix. Thanks.
