The New York Times’ Well column recently wrote about one of my favorite condiments: tahini. Made from crushed sesame seeds, tahini is full of calcium, protein, and B vitamins. It’s also a good source of essential fatty acids, which we all need to keep our skin and hair glowing.
But that’s not why I love tahini. I love its nutty, earthy flavor. It’s the perfect condiment for vegetables, either as a creamy sauce or thick, rich hummus (blended chickepeas and tahini). Best of all, since it’s full of healthy fats, it’ll keep you satisfied for the long haul.
