How to Garnish Tahini

How to Garnish Tahini thumbnail
Tahini is a main ingredient in hummus.

Tahini is a sesame seed and olive oil emulsion used as a dipping sauce and an ingredient in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean dishes like baba ganoush, hummus and some sweets. Tahini can have a smooth liquid texture if the husks of the seeds are removed before blended or it can be thicker like chunky peanut butter if blended with the husks. The seed paste goes well with both savory and sweet flavors and can be used as a spread, made into a sauce or used as a dip for flat breads, crackers and chips.
