What Is Tahini?

Tahini is a type of condiment from Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and North African cuisines. It’s made from toasted and ground hulled sesame seeds, giving it a delicious nutty flavour that’s similar in texture to a creamy nut butter.

Tahini is commonly used as part of a spread or dip, such as hummus!
