Matcha Tahini Spread – Double Superfood Power

matcha tahini spread

This matcha tahini spread combines flavors from Japan and the Mediterranean to create a healthy, yet delicious alternative to store bought spreads.  At En Healthy, tahini graces our table everyday, sometimes even more than once a day because it is nutritious and can be eaten in so many ways.  We never thought of adding matcha to tahini until we had the opportunity to taste HealthyTOKYO’s Organic Matcha and realized this unique, fresh flavor would go well with the nuttiness of the sesame seeds.

Sesame seeds have been around for more than 3000 years, and were originally harvested for oil.  Records suggest they originated in Africa or India.  These versatile little seeds have made their way across the globe and are prominent in both Japanese and Mediterranean cuisine.  The health benefits of sesame seeds are numerous as the vitamins and minerals present can help with blood sugar management, cancer, help digestion, inflammation and even act as a detoxifier.  The rich nutritional value of the sesame seeds is highlighted in this matcha tahini spread.

Even here in Cyprus, we know that matcha is the most famous Japanese superfood. You can read all about the health benefits of matcha in this infographic.  The bright green color makes the matcha tahini spread so beautiful and it also gives it a uniquely natural and refreshing quality.

Get your double superfood hit in this matcha tahini spread! It is also vegan friendly and is a delicious whole-food alternative to spreads you can find at the grocery store.
