To most people, tahini is just an ingredient that makes hummus more than just pureed chickpeas. Tahini may not sound like a typical "breakfast food" or condiment, but a good tahini has the capability to turn your favorite meals into something exciting, like a tahini-based milkshake or as a savory drizzle on your favorite French toast. This clever coffee drink from The Daily in Charleston, South Carolina, gets a touch of savory complexity from the addition of tahini. Here we serve it on ice, but it can also be served hot in the colder months.
