When you think of tahini you likely think of hummus. However, its uses go beyond the classic dip and should be explored a lot more in the kitchen. Tahini is a paste made from ground sesame seeds and is a rich source of minerals like magnesium, potassium, and iron. It’s also a great source of calcium and is high in vitamins E and B. Use it to make a homemade salad dressing, mix it into a stir-fry, or even mash it up with some avocado.
