Tahini is a thick pulp with a golden color and a velvety texture. Its gel, uniform cream, results from the grinding of whole sesame seeds and is used in both confectionery and cooking. It is used as an ointment in various baked goods, it goes well in salads, at breakfast and in the preparation of sweets and snacks and it goes well with legumes. An excellent and popular dish with tahini is the halva that we enjoy at the tables on Clean Monday.
Apart from the fact that it is delicious, by using it we avoid fats such as animal butter and margarine and that is why people consume it on an empty stomach. The best known way to use tahini is to spread it over a slice of bread with honey. Very nutritious and filling breakfast!
