What is Tahini?
Tahini, or sesame seed paste, is a staple of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cooking. It's perhaps most notable for its essential role in making hummus, although its uses go far beyond that iconic dip. The thick paste is loaded with vitamins, antioxidants and minerals, making this superfood not only heart-healthy, it also delivers a myriad of benefits for the mind, body, and soul.
Tahini is the key ingredient in two of our favorite recipes, zucchini hummus (or zummus as I like to call it) and goddess dressing. At World of Nutrition, we carry the Once Again brand of Organic, unsweetened and salt free tahini, or if you find yourself with some extra time, make your own tahini!
