Tahini paste

Tahini is made from sesame seeds that are soaked in water and then crushed to separate the bran from the kernels. The crushed seeds are soaked in salt water, causing the bran to sink. The floating kernels are skimmed off the surface, toasted, and ground to produce an oily paste.

Ways to Use Tahini

Arguably the most well known way to use tahini is when making hummus. Even though we are huge hummus geeks, we use tahini many other ways in our own kitchen.

Here€™s a list of suggestions for how to use tahini, other than in hummus.

    • Make Baba Ganoush, an incredible roasted eggplant dip that, dare I say it, might beat out hummus for our favorite dip.

    • Make your own tahini salad dressing. Give this Kale, Bean and Walnut Salad with Tahini Dressing a look.

    • Turn it into a sauce. Give our Dreamy Tahini Sauce a try, which is perfect drizzled over vegetables or meats. I especially love it over Honey Roasted Carrots and drizzled over these Chicken Lettuce Wraps.

    • Use it in dessert. Seriously. Give these Chocolate Chunk Cookies a look.

Storing Tahini

You can keep tahini covered in the refrigerator for a month, maybe a bit more. You might find that after some time in the fridge it separates, like a natural peanut butter would. All you need to do to fix this is stir it well.
