Tahini Soba Week

Meet your two new best friends, tahini and soba!

I bet you didn’t realize these were the pantry staples you’ve been missing! Before you roll your eyes at me, these are easy to find. Trader Joe’s has great tahini and Safeway/Lucky’s/Target etc. all carry soba and nori in their Asian sections. Also, for those still stumped on “tahini” – if you eat hummus, you likely have tahini every single time! Sometimes the ingredients we’re needing to spice up our routine cooking are hidden in plain sight. And thankfully, after this week you’ll realize they’re very easy to cook with!
