What is tahini?
Tahini is made by grinding the toasted hulls of sesame seeds into a paste and is a major ingredient in hummus, halva and baba ghanoush. Its nutty flavour is synonymous with Middle Eastern, North African and Eastern Mediterranean cuisines and lends itself well to both sweet and savoury dishes.
