Sweet Tahini Tortilla Rolls

This is perhaps one of the easiest (and fastest) pastries you can make with minimum time investment and absolutely impressive results. Made with only a few common ingredients, the recipe is pretty much about spreading a few things over a tortilla and rolling it up before sending it to oven. I always loved using tahini in desserts, I think it creates a wonderful contrast to the sweet taste and lends a luscious, almost earthy flavor in a very good way. The tortillas, of course, are the time savers here. They eliminate the need to make a pastry dough from scratch and they bake into a wonderfully crunchy texture.  The recipe, along with a video is below:

Garbanzo Bean Flour Omelette

Garbanzo bean flour omelettes are my new breakfast addiction. Besides the fact that they are packed with protein, and that they are amazingly tasty, they are also so very easy to make using just a handful of ingredients whisked together. Feel free to craft the flavor to your liking of course using your choice if spices. I personally went with one of my all time favorites, the Spicemode Tikka seasoning. You have heard me mention Spicemode before, I am so grateful to have discovered this company every time I crack open the lid of one of their spice blends, so fragrant, fresh and flavorful <3

Artichoke Hummus

Artichoke hummus is absolutely one of my favorite variations on this super versatile and nutritious spread. I am a big fan of artichokes themselves and I was curious to see if any of that flavor would carry into a hummus. It took me by surprise just how amazing it turned out to be! The artichoke flavor is definitely there but not overwhelming, perfectly complementing the rich, earthy, slightly sour and wholly satisfying taste profile. The recipe is below.
