Tahini is a versatile ingredient that can be used to create all sorts of delicious toppings, like salad dressing and garlic sauce for steak or roasted veggies and of course hummus. If you remember to keep some in your fridge, you can add it to any sauce or dip for extra richness.
Whether you want to thicken a sauce, dip or dressing, tahini should be your go-to ingredient. You'll end up with a richer texture without significantly changing the taste. Since you can substitute tahini where you'd normally use cream or mayo, anyone who is lactose intolerant can enjoy it too.
