Recipe: Raw Tahini Date Fudge, Vegan & Gluten-free

by The Colorful Kitchen


Tahini is a very magical ingredient. It’s distinct flavor works wonders in both savory and sweet dishes. I thought I would share one of the dessert recipes from Color Your Kitchen that’s made without refined sugar and features tahini. This Vegan, Gluten-Free Raw Tahini Date Fudge is one of those recipes that’s so simple (yet delicious) that it’s almost too good to be true. The taste is similar to halvah (my favorite middle eastern dessert) and the consistency is totally melt-in-your-mouth creamy.

Ingredients

12 pitted dates, soaked 30 minutes
½ cup tahini
¼ cup coconut oil, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
dash of salt

Instructions

Drain dates.
Combine dates with all ingredients in blender until smooth.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread mixture out on parchment paper. Use hands to form rectangle about ¾” thick.
Place in freezer for 45 minutes to set. Remove and slice into squares. Store in freezer.

We make it frequently, in small batches, so it’s fresh and alive.

As global insect population plunges toward total ecological collapse, the corporate-run media still censors the truth about GMOs and pesticides


(Natural News) For more than a decade, Natural News has been warning the public about the dangers of the use of chemical pesticides and herbicides, and the genetic modification of plants to withstand the onslaught of such chemicals. In return, Natural News – like most members of the independent media – has been vilified, mocked and even censored by the mainstream media. Worse, even generally respected journalists have stubbornly insisted, despite mounting evidence that these chemicals have a profoundly negative effect on human and environmental health, that so-called “conventional” farming methods are totally safe.

Sadly, Big Agri has continued to sell its deadly poisons, and things have now become so bad that even some in the mainstream media have started reporting on the devastating impact these chemicals continue to have on insect populations.

As reported by the U.K.’s Guardian, for example, an alarming study published in the journal Biological Conservation recently has confirmed that the planet’s insects are “hurtling down the path to extinction,” with more than 40 percent of all insect species declining and around a third endangered. The researchers found that there are several contributing factors to these shocking statistics, with the worst culprits being habitat loss caused by intensive agriculture and the use of “agro-chemical pollutants,” i.e. synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. (Related: Even TINY traces of pesticides found to cause infertility in insects, scientists discover.)
