What Is Tahini Sauce?
Tahini sauce is made from tahini, which is a butter or paste made from ground sesame, traditionally used in Middle Eastern or Mediterranean cuisine. Tahini is a main ingredient in hummus and tahini sauce and the sauce made from it is often deliciously drizzled on falafel sandwiches.
Tahini is not only found in savory dishes, though. It also finds its place in sweets such as halva, a sesame-based dessert with a fudge-like texture. Tahini can also be used as an ingredient in baking as its creamy texture and slightly nutty flavor complements banana bread and cookies.
