Recipe Notes

*For fresh ginger, I like to use Dorot Gardens frozen herb cubes, found in the freezer section of your grocery store. You can also substitute the fresh ginger with 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger.

**Tahini is found in most all grocery stores, Target and Walmart. It is typically located near peanut and almond butter.
