Spread it on things. Eat it with a spoon. Add some protein and iron to your morning waffles and savor the warming, delicious flavors of tahini, maple syrup, and vanilla.
½ cup tahini, room temperature (I like this kind)
1½ tbsp maple syrup
¼ tsp vanilla extract
Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Mix with an electric mixer (hand or stand) for about 30 seconds (I used mine on speed 2), until well combined and a bit fluffed. Spread will keep in the fridge for several days, but will thicken. If desired, bring to room temperature and re-fluff with electric mixture.
Yield: a heaping 1/2 cup
