Re: what can i do with tahini?

Make a sause by adding:
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • garlic
  • lemon juice
    and if necassary
  • water to thin
It should be mostly tahini, but adding the other stuff makes it really yummy for lots of things... of course I can't think of any right now, lol!
Ok, maybe rice, stir fry, pasta (asian style?), toast (like do it garlic bread style and broil it),
Oh, just found a "recipe" of sorts...
  • smashed, roasted eggplant
  • tahini
  • garlic
  • parsley
  • lemon juice
  • salt
It isn't in my handwriting and doesn't have any directions or a title, but it sounds promising, lol! Maybe a dip of sorts? But that's another idea, make dip! Or, toss some tahini on veggies (or meat?) and roast them... I'm just spitting out things as they enter my head and haven't really tried any of these things, but they sound good right?
Good luck!
Oh, and one other idea... check recipe sites and search with tahini as a key word! Try www.recipezaar.com and www.foodtv.com (for vegitarian recipes try www.vegweb.com). HTH!

ETA: I'm feeling really dumb. The eggplant stuff is baba ghanoush. It IS a dip at least!

Re: what can i do with tahini?

Ok... so my curiosity was sparked and I checked it out on RecipeZaar. Found out it can be used it soups, and here is a link that might be helpful: http://www.recipezaar.com/recipes.ph...8&title=tahini
To narow it down (also check out the definitions at the top) try http://www.recipezaar.com/ingreds.php?q=tahini
Food network search:
http://web.foodnetwork.com/food/web/...rchType=Recipe
and VegWeb search:
http://vegweb.com/index.php?action=search2
Not that you couldn't have done that yourself, lol! But I wanted to see too...

ETA: Don't be scared of the VegWeb recipes if you aren't a vegitarian... almost all of the recipes can be altered and used with cows milk, butter, cheese, and with meat added (if aplicable, lol).

I use it as a sandwich spread with all-fruit strawberry jam for DD. She LOVES it!

Personally, I never tasted it. But it's made from sesame seeds, which have a peanut-y taste anyway, so that's how I came up with that combo.

I think you can use it in place of peanut butter.
