Tahini, also known as Ardeh, is a condiment made from a toasted ground sesame seeds. This traditional sauce is served in Israel and in Arab countries throughout Middle East. Tahini is served as a dip on its own or as a major component of hummus, baba ghanoush, and halva. It can also be served alongside a kosher meat meal as a dairy-free alternative to cream sauce.
Tahini is a great source of calcium, manganese, the amino acid methionine, and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Tahini's relatively high levels of calcium and protein make it a useful addition to vegetarian and vegan diets, as well as to raw food diets when eaten in its unroasted form. It has higher levels of fiber and calcium and lower levels of sugar and saturated fats than peanut butter.
Because of Tahini’s high oil content adding yogurt will give a great texture to it. We used a homemade yogurt for this. Yes, you actually can! How? We used the first ever portable yogurt maker Yomee.
