Tahini! Versatile, energy-dense, and delicious, tahini is made from sesame seeds that have been soaked. Tahini may be most familiar as a traditional ingredient in hummus.
Raw tahini is available (for a price) but most store-bought tahini seems to be made from roasted sesame seeds that have been ground into a smooth rich paste.
You can also make your own pretty easily, though I haven't tried it yet.
What to do with your tahini:
*Drizzle on your salad, quinoa, or toasted GF bread
*Blend with ginger, lemon juice and fresh ground black pepper for a salad dressing or sauce.
*Combine with wheat-free tamari soy sauce, a smidge of sesame oil, and rice vinegar. Add minced green onions and black pepper. Toss with your completed vegetable stir-fry. (Don't heat it too much, put it on already cooked food.)
*Dip apple slices in a bowl of tahini for snack.
*Blend tahini with salt, lemon juice, and garlic, with a little water. Use as a sauce for kale or spinach.
Like all oily rich foods, keep tahini the fridge in a glass container.
