Tahini Toast — A good toast for one or a crowd. These beautiful toasts are simple but satisfying. The Tahini is enhanced with miso and brown butter, and sprinkled with a few edible flowers—mostly for show, although they can add a subtle flavor, too. Serve this with tea in the afternoon for a cheerful boost. Serves 2.
2 slices cherry buckwheat bread
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 table spoons salted butter
1/4 cup (60 ml) Black or White Tahini
1 teaspoon fresh or dried edible flower petals
Cyprus flake salt
Preheat the oven to 350 °F (175 °C). Brush both slices of the bread with the olive oil and place on a baking sheet. Toast in the oven, flipping once halfway through, until they are golden and crisp on the outside, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside.
In a small sauté pan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring, until the butter begins to smell nutty and turns a rich, golden brown. Remove from the heat immediately and pour into a small bowl.
To assemble the toast, spread the tahini evenly over both slices. Drizzle with brown butter and sprinkle the petals and flakey salt.
