There’s numerous different ways to include tahini into your diet. It’s perfect for the cooler months.
‘Open sesame’ – the famous phrase from the ‘Arabian Night’s’ reflects the distinguishing feature of the sesame seed pod, which bursts open when it reaches maturity.
Tahini is a paste made from grinding sesame seeds. The seeds are squashed between 2 very large (about 1 ton each) sandstone wheels turning in opposite directions. Look for organic tahini of course, then you’ll know all you’re getting is the paste, nothing else.
