Tahini

Collection of our favorite Tahini recipes & beautiful images from the feedfeed global community of homecooks, chefs, bloggers, & food organizations

A Note From Nicole Olthuis

Tahini, a sesame seed paste, is a staple in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine. We may know it for its right hand role in making hummus, though its talents go far beyond that distinguished dip. Have you ever bought tahini for a special recipe, and the rest of the jar still sits in your fridge, waiting for the next time you feel inspired to experiment? Tahini is not a seed butter to be ignored. It makes delicious dressings, creamy soups and sauces, decadent sweets, and beautiful entrées. There are different varieties of tahini; raw, hulled, unhulled, light and dark roast. Tahini can even be made from black sesame seeds. Usually the level of bitterness and nutritional value go hand in hand, but no matter the difference, each variety of tahini is delicious in its own way. There are no set rules for using and enjoying tahini on a daily basis, so feel free to experiment, and I hope you find the inspiration you are looking for here on this feed!

Vegan Banana Bread With Sweet Cinnamon Tahini Frosting

Vegan Banana Bread (disguised as pound cake) with a sweet cinnamon tahini frosting Experimenting a little with moody vibes after watching @valentinahortus class at @christiannkoepke Online Global Food Conference. I always thought that too dark and too moody isn't my thing because I love color too much and didn't want to sacrifice on vibrancy. But I actually quite like it. What do you think?

Sesame Ginger Tahini Sweet Potato Wraps

11:45 is a good lunch time isn't it?! I mean technically it's still morning, but close enough to noon, thus the afternoon and lunch time. Well, lunch time or not, I'm eating these now because I'm HUNGRY. So there. Had little mans 6 month check up and shots (poor guy) this AM and came back starving. It's so weird, whenever I leave the house to run errands and such, I always come back starving! Anyone else have that problem?!
