The Best Vegan Soom Recipes

Honestly, these are some of the best vegan Soom recipes! Whether you follow a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle, these vegan tahini and silan recipes should be added to your monthly rotation. Tahini is perfect for making creamy sauces without added creams or dairy products. Plus, these sauces are full of the nutritional benefits of tahini including plant-based calcium, iron, and protein, B vitamins, and a hefty serving of healthy fats. Silan is another stellar option when choosing a sugar substitute that’s not only vegan, but also has a lower glycemic index than maple syrup, honey, and refined sugar!

Below are some of our favorite vegan recipes that most people will love!


the best hummus ever recipe

The Best Hummus

People think that chickpeas are the star of the show when it comes to hummus, but it couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, tahini is what really shines, or what should be the focus if it’s not already! Since good hummus calls for 1+ cups of tahini, it’s important to use high-quality tahini! Don’t just take it from us, but from hummus experts who happen to have Israeli roots: Michael Solomonov and Eden Grinshpan. This tahini hummus hits all of the right notes. It’s slightly garlicky, subtly lemony, and perfectly nutty. The amount of tahini used makes the hummus light and fluffy.

The dressing is composed of soy sauce, tahini, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, and silan, and leaves your taste buds dancing. It really excites the palette with its Asian-inspired flavor and creamy texture! Throw the butter lettuce on the grill for additional charred flavor.


the best vegan mac and cheese - soom foods

Vegan Tahini Mac & “Cheese”

This is hands-down the best vegan Mac & Cheese recipe we’ve ever had. It does require a few extra steps and ingredients than regular mac and cheese, but it is so worth it! Tahini plays an incredible part in making the sauce as luscious, tasty, and creamy as a typical roux. Feed it to children for a healthier, vegan alternative to the traditional cheese-filled mac.

wine braised eggplant pasta with lemon tahini sauce

Wine Braised Eggplant and Tomato Pasta with Lemon Tahini Sauce

Swap tomato sauce for this bright lemon tahini sauce. When eaten with the tender eggplant and tomatoes that were cooked in a little olive oil and white wine, and al dente pasta, it adds citrus notes that play sing in harmony with the nuttiness of the pasta and flavors of the vegetables. It’s a perfect spring and summer meal, although it can be enjoyed any time of the year.


berry tahini smoothie

Berry Tahini Smoothie

Delicious, fresh, and easy are the three words that come to mind when taking a swig of this smoothie. Use this recipe with your favorite berries (although we love it most with strawberries), and notice how well the tahini lends its nutty flavor into the smoothie. It’s a simple, nutritious, and on-the-go breakfast to be enjoyed by anyone in the family!


vegan tahini stir fry sauce - tofu - soom foods

Spicy Tahini & Silan Stir Fry Sauce

If you like to bring the heat, you’ll enjoy this recipe. The sauce has a lot of depth and flavor thanks to the tahini, fresh ginger, silan, garlic, and acid from limes and rice wine vinegar. Use this sauce to coat your sesame tofu and rice noodles, or toss some cooked chicken breast in this sauce and place it on top of cooked brown rice.  The sauce is the showstopper here. PS: if you’re not the biggest fan of hot or spicy food, you can temper the heat level by the amount of Sriracha you put in here.
