Recipe Comments:

Question: I've just made this recipe and I liked it very much, very simple, tasty, easy, clean and healthy. But it was a bit too bitter in the end... What could it be? Too much tahini? Thank you, Sofia S.

Answer: Sometimes tahini can be quite bitter. In that case use less of it, maybe mix it half and half with almond or cashew butter or thin it with some almond milk, or add a little sweetener to counteract the bitterness - Savvy Veg.
