Blended with olive oil, it creates a great dip, salad dressing, or condiment for fish, meats, vegetables, shawarma, and falafel. It also works well in stir-fried noodles.
Don’t underestimate the versatility of a quality tahini! Of course, you can use it to make your own hummus by blending it with chickpeas, garlic, and olive oil. But you can also use tahini in desserts, mixing it with a mild olive oil to create a paste and using it as you would peanut butter by spreading it on brownies, cakes, toast with honey, or cookies – wherever you want that nutty flavour.
The essential ingredient of hummus, tahini is a toasted sesame seed paste that adds a bright, nutty, savoury bite to both expected and unexpected dishes. This Middle Eastern and Mediterranean staple can be served solo as a dip or added to vegetables, noodles, salads, and baked goods.
