is a paste made of ground sesame seeds.
It’s used in Mediterranean cuisine as a dip or in recipes like hummus & baba ghanoush. 👅 It’s available at most grocery stores in the international aisle or near other nut/seed butters.
Tahini is a nutrition powerhouse…
It contains plant-protein, good fats, and fiber. Tahini also contains:
✔️ bone-building calcium
✔️ energy-enhancing iron
✔️ collagen-creating copper
✔️ immune-boosting zinc
Tahini has a nutty flavor, so you can use it just like a jar of nut butter. It’s great for someone w/ allergies since research finds sesame seed allergies are rare and found in only 0.1% of the population. 💥
