Tahini recipes

Tahini is a smooth paste, made from ground sesame seeds. You’ll often find it in savoury Middle Eastern dishes but don’t be afraid to try it out in sweet recipes too. In these top tahini recipes, we’ve added this versatile ingredient to sauces or dips (such as houmous), drizzled it atop a range of fresh salads and have even used it in home baking.
