tachini (tahini)


Hummus, #raw tahini and #raw almond butter fresh out of the #vitamix, and they all taste perfect. I'm in heaven! #vegan

Tahini, or ground sesame seeds. For a long time it was more common on Cyprus and the Dodecanese island than elsewhere in Greece, but now you can find it almost everywhere.

Soups, sauces and stews
