We make our smooth, creamy classic tahini from white sesame seeds, coconut oil and a pinch of Bali sea salt. Enjoy as a dip or spread, use on bread or toast, or drizzle over a salad or fruit. Add a spoonful to yogurt or a smoothie for a protein boost. Tahini can be added to pureed chickpeas to make hummus, the traditional Middle Eastern spread/dip. You can also make a delicious healthy salad dressing from tahini, water and lime juice.
