Cozy Tahini Reishi Latte with Herbal Coffee

Serves 1 | ready in 10 minutes


    Nutty tahini and creamy cashew butter form the base of this cozy, luxurious blender latte. Dates give it a caramel-like flavor and richness, pairing perfectly with the robust flavors in herbal coffee (which is usually made with ingredients like chicory, roasted dandelion root and/or roasted barley). Not a herbal coffee fan? Use regular hot brewed coffee instead.


    Nouveau reishi

    New research on reishi indicates it’s a powerful prebiotic to feed beneficial bacteria in the gut. That’s in addition to its longstanding status as a medicinal mushroom linked with better immune function, longevity and greater mental clarity!

    Open-Faced Breakfast Sandwiches with Asparagus and Spring Microgreens

    Eggs and asparagus are so quintessentially spring and nothing could be easier to prepare than this simple yet elegant dish that works as well for breakfast as for a light lunch. The earthy flavours of asparagus are complemented by a light dressing of licorice-scented tarragon and a little dash of heat. To make this dish more filling, choose a hearty whole grain bread as the base of your sandwich. One with a blend of ancient grains including spelt or khorasan wheat (Kamut) is particularly nice. Springtime presents a wonderful opportunity to experiment with a host of different microgreens. Spicy radish microgreens or bright, young pea shoots work equally well in this dish. Dry your eggs Ensure you won’t add any extra moisture to the dish by carefully drying eggs before placing on your plates. Using slotted spoon, remove eggs from water, allowing the bulk of the water to drain over the saucepan. Lay slotted spoon on a kitchen towel and gently roll the spoon to allow each egg to come to rest on the towel. Pat the top of the egg gently and lift the towel to roll each egg back onto the spoon and place on your dish.
