Lebanese Plain Halawa 450g


Lebanese plain halawa, also known as halwa or halva, is classically enjoyed in slices with a cup of strong coffee. It’s sweet and nutty with a dry, crumbly and almost crystalline texture that melts in the mouth. Halawa is made from sesame paste (tahini), sugar syrup and halawa root – also known as marsh-mallow root.

There are lots of ways to enjoy plain halawa – crumble it over ice cream sundaes, serve a little for breakfast with natural yoghurt and fresh fruits, or even stir pieces through a brownie mixture before baking. In fact, in any sweet recipe that calls for crushed peanuts or peanut butter, try using halawa instead for a Middle Eastern twist.

Ingredients: tahini (52%) (sesame seeds), sugar, halawa root extract (2%), vanilla, food acid (E330). Contains sulphur dioxide. Allergens are listed in bold.
