Tahini 450g

Description

Tahini, or tahina, is one of the most important ingredients in any Middle Eastern cuisine. It's a thick sesame paste, made from lightly toasted and ground sesame seeds. It's also popular in Greek and Moroccan cooking. This tahini is especially dense and flavoursome, so a little goes a long way.

This brand of tahini is one of the best we've tried at Sous Chef. It has a velvety texture, with a slightly sweet and wonderfully nutty flavour. To make a classic Israeli dressing - also known as tahini sauce - whisk the sesame paste with ice cold water, lemon juice and a pinch of salt until lightly coloured and silky smooth. Spoon generously over falafel and almost any roasted vegetables.

Mix a couple of tablespoons of tahini into hummus and baba ganoush for depth of flavour. Combine the tahini with lemon juice, crushed garlic and thin with a little water for a sauce to drizzle over white fish, pulses and roasted vegetables. 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. 

Tahini may separate during storage. This is normal - simply stir well before each use.

Ingredients: 100% sesame seeds.

Allergy Advice: for allergens see ingredients listed in bold.

Storage: store at room temperature. Shake well before use.

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.
