13 Healthy Recipes Using Tahini

From sweet treats to delicious meal prep ideas, these will be your new favorite recipes using tahini! With plenty of vegan and nut-free options, these recipes are perfect for feeding a crowd. 

As you guys know, I have major love for tahini and will probably find any excuse to include it in a recipe. I first fell in love with the incredible spread when I took a trip to the Middle East a few years ago. Gorgeous vintage rugs + endless amounts of tahini = HEAVEN.

What is tahini? It’s just sesame seeds ground into a creamy, earthy, slightly bitter, slightly sweet paste that has the texture of natural nut butter. The flavor is mild and perfect for adding spices and herbs for a savory sauce or dip. I personally love to bake with it because it keeps desserts super moist without adding too much of a nut butter flavor.
Because tahini is made from sesame seeds it’s perfect for keeping recipes nut-free and allergy friendly. AKA tahini brownies for everyone.

Stock up on tahini ASAP and get ready to make these delicious recipes. Soom is my go-to brand, and they have a chocolate tahini that is literally the best thing I keep in my cupboard. SO GOOD. Use the code ‘ambitiouskitchen‘ to get 10% off of your Soom order, and then tell me what you make first! Can’t wait to hear. Enjoy, xo!
