How to Incorporate Soom into Your Winter Holiday Cooking and Baking

It’s the most wonderful time of the year (queue Andy William’s performance)! There’s nothing better than preparing for the holidays with family and friends and eating the most delicious bites.

We put together a list of traditional eats the Soom Crew makes for the holidays and how you can incorporate Soom products into them.


Appetizers and Side Dishes

  • Glazed Butternut Squash: Not only is this dish a visual gem, but it’s a delectable crowd pleaser, too. Just swap Soom Silan for the maple syrup and you’re set.
  • Latkes: Instead of serving your latkes with applesauce and sour cream, have you ever considered a silan and tahini dip? If not, try this one!
  • Tahini Whipped Sweet Potatoes: We love this recipe. It’s creamy, nutty, sweet, and everything you’d imagine. Swap out honey for 1 tbsp of Soom Silan.
  • Silan Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts: Silan and balsamic is a match made in heaven. Sub silan in for the honey in this recipe and wow your family with these brussels sprouts.
  • Vegan Sweet Potato Gratin: It’s not your typical gratin, but it’s so comforting, nourishing, and flavorful.
  • Cornbread with Whipped Silan Butter: To top this salty and savory cornbread, whip sweet butter and silan together for a delicious bite.
  • Pea Dip: It makes for a great component for your crudite spread or as a component of your entree.
  • Bacon-Wrapped Brussel Sprouts: Toss the brussels sprouts in salt, pepper, and silan, and wrap them in bacon for smokiness and additional deliciousness.


  • Cheese Board: Soom products are incredible components of cheese boards, especially silan! Check the image below for some of our favorite pairings.
  • Applewood Smoked Turkey Breast with Cider Bourbon Gravy: We replaced Soom Silan for the maple syrup for the brine. This recipe is perfection.



  • Silan Pecan Pie: This may be the best pecan pie we’ve ever had.
  • Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies: sub in tahini for half the butter like we did in this delicious recipe. It allows for each cookie to have a nutty edge, but still the crispy, chewy goodness of traditional chocolate chip cookies.
  • Snickerdoodles – Swap half the butter with Soom Tahini and make the best snickerdoodles you possibly have ever had.
  • Silan Tahini Halva Shortbread Cookies: Cut the amount of white sugar and incorporate Soom Silan into your shortbread cookies this year. They have less of the cloying sweetness and additional richness your taste buds will love.
  • Tahini Sugar Cookies: If you incorporate sugar cookies within your holiday baked goods, why not slightly adapt them to include tahini? Not only will they be sweet, but they’ll be more-rounded from the nuttiness of the sesame. This recipe is vegan and flourless, and make for a healthy dessert!
  • Molasses Cookies: Soom Silan is a great alternative to molasses (and it’s more nutritious, too!). In this recipe, sub in silan for the same amount of molasses.

  • Tahini Oatmeal Raisin Cookies: The tahini adds extra dimension and extra yum.
  • Silan and Tahini Banana Bread: For a great end to a dinner or a wonderful start to the day, make our silan and tahini banana bread. With a glass of milk, this moist and sweet banana bread will have you going back for seconds.
  • Sufganiyot: Sufganiyot, or jelly doughnuts, are a must when it comes to celebrating Channukah. Consider making them from scratch, and instead of jelly, stuffing them with Soom Tahini, Chocolate Soom, or even Silan!
  • Rugelach: You know what’s better than chocolate rugelach? Chocolate tahini rugelach!



  • Chocolate Tahini Hot Cocoa: there’s nothing like an evening in the winter with a large mug filled with chocolate tahini hot cocoa. Pair with a tahini chocolate chip cookie for an incredible combination.
  • Spiced Tahini Latte infused with Soom Silan: we’re inspired by our friends at Solo Espresso down in NOLA. Join us in creating our own spiced tahini lattes that are infused with Soom Silan and allspice!
