Tahini Cardamom

Believe it or not, tahini, a.k.a. the familiar ingredient and flavor you taste in hummus, makes a mean vegan ice cream too. In this recipe for Tahini Cardamom Ice Cream, the tahini acts like a caramel sauce, swirling throughout the scoops and adding a burst of flavor. (Looking for more things to make with this Mediterranean spice? Try these 10 Creative Ways to Use Tahini That Aren't Hummus.) Meanwhile, the cardamom in the ice cream brings a hint of chai tea spice.
