"Nutty in flavor and velvety in texture, Krinos Tahini is made from the purest ground sesame seeds. Widely used in Greek, Middle Eastern, Turkish and North African cuisine, tahini is an essential component of traditional spreads like hummus, baba ganoosh – and the basis of the confection known as “halva.” Drizzle and savor our thoroughly blended tahini right out of the jar onto falafel, grilled meat, chicken or lamb kebabs. Blend Krinos Tahini yogurt and herbs for a light and tangy sauce. For a creamy variation on a chopped Middle Eastern salad, mix our tahini with olive oil, red vinegar, oregano and a squeeze of lemon. A nutritional powerhouse, tahini is an excellent source of calcium and protein, and rich in E and B vitamins. More modern dessert recipes are calling for luxurious tahini because of its nutritional value and peanut buttery taste. Many vegetarian and vegan dessert recipes now include tahini because of its exceptional nutritional value."
