We love hummus in our family. Seriously. It’s possibly the only food that everyone here eats.
So, I make a lot of hummus. Which means that I always have a can (or two) of tahini in my pantry.
What’s tahini? It’s a paste – similar to peanut butter – made from ground sesame seeds. And, along with chickpeas, it is an essential component in hummus.
What I didn’t know was how very versatile tahini is – and that it can be used in so many types of dishes. So I started doing a little research – and I’ve rounded up 28 (yes, 28!) fabulous and creative recipes that highlight tahini!
One quick note – much like “natural” peanut butter, tahini separates upon settling. So don’t be alarmed when you open it up for the first time – just give it a good stir to emulsify. And keep it in the fridge after opening.
Ready? Now go grab a can (or two) and get cooking – and baking!
