Tahini is a paste made from ground sesame seeds. It's extremely versatile and is delicious as a base for creamy sauces and dressings and can be used in cooking and baking. It is super healthy - full of key vitamins and nutrients and is a staple I always have in my fridge.
Tahini is extremely high in calcium for strong bones. It is also rich in healthy fats, iron and protein for good, long lasting energy. It is also high in skin beautifying vitamin E.
It is available at most grocery stores by the almond or peanut butter and definitely available at a health food grocery store.
Once opened, I keep mine in the fridge. It often needs a stir - this is normal as the oil will separate.
