Tahini Caramel Cheesecake


tahini caramel cheesecake topped with jam and sesame crunchy triangles
This is a no-bake vegan Cheesecake recipe that uses Tahini in its crust, filling and topping, as Tahini is a healthier nut butter compared to other nut butters and is a versatile ingredient that can be used in both sweet and savory dishes and in different ways. It is a satisfying recipe that can be easily modified using different ingredients and different toppings. Instagram: @sher.91

My Story

Cheesecakes have always been nostalgic to me. I remember eating a lot of it when I was young. But being heavily dairy-based has made it hard for me to fulfill this savory/tart/sweet combination when it comes to desserts. As I've discovered cashew-based cheesecakes, they became my favorite as it was satisfying to recreate the flavors I grew up liking, by using plant-based ingredients. I decided to use Tahini in this recipe as it's a common ingredient used in my Lebanese culture and when combined with caramel, it gives it this perfect addition that you didn't know you needed.
