Tahini a thick sesame paste, made from lightly toasted and ground sesame seeds. This tahini is especially dense and flavoursome, so a little goes a long way.
When stored, the tahini separates into an oil top, and thick, oatmeal-coloured base – so stir before use. Mix a couple of tablespoons of tahini into hummus and baba ganoush for depth of flavour. Also, combine the tahini with lemon juice, garlic and water for a sauce to drizzle over white fish, pulses and roasted vegetables.
Traditionally, a couple of tablespoons of tahini are added into hummus and baba ganoush for depth of flavour. For a tasty salad dressing or easy sauce for white fish, pulses and roasted vegetables, combine the tahini with lemon juice, garlic and water. Or even try adding a few tablespoons of tahini to a homemade coleslaw along with peanuts and spring onions for an Asian twist on this classic salad. The tahini can separate when stored, so it requires a thorough stir before use.
Ingredients: 100% sesame seeds. Please note: Al Taj Tahina and Teeba Tahina are different brands of Al Mona’s Finest Tahina, produced in the Al Mona factory in Riyadh. Occasionally we switch between the two brands, depending on availability.
