You know tahini; if you’ve ever eaten hummus chances are you’ve eaten tahini. It’s a sesame seed paste that’s similar to a nut butter but thinner in texture and more subtle in flavor. Tahini is a key ingredient in the classic chickpea dip but don’t limit it to hummus, that’s not the only dish where the rich, nutty flavor of tahini shines. Tahini is excellent in other dips too (try our cauliflower-spinach dip and see), as well as in everything from eggs to roasted fish, also in sauces and it gives a rich, buttery flavor to a dairy free soup. And did we mention our tahini cookies?!
