Day 63 – Happy Halva

I was flicking through Jenny Ross’ Raw Basics cook book and saw this Happy Halva recipe and it made me think of the first time I was introduced to Halva.  A friend took me along to a deli at the Queen Victoria Market in Melbourne and bought some Halva – you are going to love this she said… and it was like nothing I had eaten before, sweet and rich and melt in the mouth!

So I decided to give Jenny Ross’ recipe a go – added a little Cacao to make it chocolate Halva.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup tahini

1/2 cup raw honey

dash of Himalayan salt

cinnamon, cacao, pistachios etc… for flavour

Method:

Place all ingredients into bowl and combine until a thick paste forms.

I found that the recipe needs to be refrigerated to thicken a little.  The consistency is like fudge and fairly pliable.  Next time, I will add some extra ground sesame seeds to the mixture so that the halva is firmer.

Very sweet – very halva and delicious.

I might use this to spread on apples or pears 🙂
