Questions and Answers – Tahini or Sesame Paste

 

Question:

Hello!  I have a recipe for Oriental Orzo Salad, and it calls for Tahini.  I am not sure what it is or where to look for it.  Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks. – Jennifer G (5/30/02)

 

Answer: 

TahiniTahini or Sesame Paste is the equivalent of peanut butter, only it is made from 100% crushed or ground hulled sesame seeds.  It can be used as a sandwich spread or mixed with a variety of other seasonings, such as garlic and onion or cayenne pepper, to make a tasty dip or salad dressing.

Sesame Paste is a key ingredient in hummus, the traditional Middle Eastern chickpea spread.  If you can not find it in your grocery store, peanut butter can be substituted.
