Tahini
Typically used in Middle Eastern cooking, a thick paste made from ground sesame seeds that commonly seasons dips, sauces, spreads, and other dishes such as hummus. Its consistency is thinner than peanut butter and it can be found in health food stores and the ethnic section of most grocery stores. Tahini comes in a variety of forms from a sweetened darker version to fresh, in cans, in jars, or dehydrated.
