Toast #2: Tomatoes, Green Tahini, and Toasted Sesame

We are Matt and Lentil, and we believe that health and happiness come from real,

traditional food, a warm home, and a mastery of life’s fundamentals.

So simple, but so good. Back when I was a speech therapist, there was a cafe near my work that served green tahini and tomatoes on toast that made my mornings. I hope this recipe does the same for you.


4 to 8 slices sourdough bread
4 to 5 ounces green tahini
finely chopped garlic chives
toasted sesame oil
4 very ripe heirloom salad tomatoes, cut into thick slices
toasted sesame seeds
unrefined salt
ground black pepper

  1. Toast the bread and spread on a thick layer of green tahini.
  2. Sprinkle with the garlic chives and splash on some sesame oil.
  3. Lay the sliced tomato on top, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
