Tahini Cherries on Toast

Tahini Cherries

They’re here! We wait all year for those beautiful cherries to show up in our supermarkets - and they are such a joy once they finally arrive. We love incorporating them into our breakfast, from porridge to smoothies and of course on toast.

Today’s recipe uses tahini as a spread. You may be skeptical, but tahini is absolutely delicious when spread on toasted bread — very similar to the nuttiness and texture you get from a nut butter. Trust us! The combination of tart, plump cherries with nutty tahini is a refreshing change. Feel free to use honey or maple syrup as a sweetener.

  • 1 thick slice of For the Love of Bread country sourdough batard, toasted
  • 2 tbsp tahini, stirred
  • 150 grams cherries, pitted & halved
  • 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • sesame seeds to finish

Spread the tahini evenly over the toast. Place the halved cherries on top and drizzle with honey or maple syrup. Finish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Enjoy!
