Vegan Halva (Persian desert)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • optional: 1/3 cup roasted pistachios

Lightly grease a small glass baking dish. Place the maple syrup in a medium saucepan and heat over medium heat until it reaches 266°F (130°C). While the maple syrup is heating, place the tahini, vanilla extract, and pistachios if using in another saucepan and warm over low heat. Tahini must be just warm, not hot.
Once the maple syrup has reached the temperature, turn the heat off and pour the warm tahini into the saucepan. Stir with a wooden spoon until it starts to thicken and doesn’t look shiny anymore. You can use an electric beater if you want but do not beat for too long as it thickens very quickly, about 5-10 seconds.
Pour immediately into the prepared dish and spread it into an even layer. Let cool at room temperature for at least 3 hours before removing from the pan. Cut it into small squares or chunks.
