The Mighty Sesame Company now offers its Sesame Tahini dressings in squeezable bottles. Mighty Sesame doesn’t separate, so it’s always perfectly blended and ready to use.
Given the tahini’s nutty taste, it can be used in salad dressings, as a sauce for sandwiches or tacos, or simply spread over toast with jam or date syrup. It also adds flavor to cookies, cakes, shakes, bars, mousses, and even granola. Try making tahini dips or cucumber salad with miso/tahini dressing, marinated entrees like fish tacos with tahini and sriracha, or a chicken breast baguette hero sandwich drizzled with tahini (recipe below) .
Best of all, tahini is a superfood. Made from one ingredient — 100 percent roasted sesame seeds — Mighty Sesame Tahini is loaded with plant-based protein, calcium, and other vitamins and minerals. All varieties (original fine and whole seed) are vegan, gluten- and dairy-free, kosher, and halal.
Find squeezable tahini and other Mighty Sesame products at local kosher markets and supermarket chains. They are distributed by Kayco, the top purveyor of kosher foods in America.
