What is tahini?

Tahini is a sesame (or butter) paste made with sesame seeds and sesame oil. It is found in ethnic shops (but now also in large-scale distribution) has a delicate , almost nutty flavor, and is pure, in the sense that it has no added elements other than sesame.

Sesame is a rich food, especially in antioxidants (Vitamin E) and vitamin B, as well as having a good share of very important mineral salts including magnesium, iron, calcium and more.
