So, what is tahina?

Tahina, also known as tahini, is a creamy and nutty paste made from ground sesame seeds. It is a popular ingredient in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine and is often used as a dip or a spread. Tahina is rich in healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals, making it a nutritious addition to any dish. Its distinct nutty flavor pairs well with other bold flavors like lemon and garlic, and it is a common ingredient in dishes like hummus, baba ghanoush, and falafel. Tahina is also a versatile ingredient that can be used in both savory and sweet recipes, adding a delicious and unique taste to dishes like halva and sesame cookies.
