Tahini

Tahini, a paste made from sesame seeds, is a Middle Eastern staple. It’s a key ingredient in hummus, the traditional chickpea dip, but its rich flavor complements other dishes too. Blended with lemon juice, oil, and seasonings, tahini is especially tasty as a dressing for salad, veggies, or sandwiches.
