Tahini is a spread, originally from Arab countries, made from ground sesame seeds. It can be used in the preparation of many dishes, and also as an independent food.

Tahini is rich in essential amino and fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. It is useful to remember that it is an excellent source of calcium.

In cooking, tahini is an indispensable ingredient of hummus, and you can also use it as a base for:
- salad dressing,
- sauce for raw or roasted vegetables,
- pasta sauce,
- spread on pastries,
- for thickening broths and
- enrichment of cream soup.
