Tahini, with its glowing nutritional profile, features: protein, calcium and iron. It’s a staple in our kitchen, and I attempt to add this often underrated seed butter to any dish I can. Whether you’re making something savory or sweet, tahini is your pal.
On its own, I’ve noticed tahini can have an overpowering and bitter taste. To counteract this, I add a bit citrus juice to any recipe. As a bonus, by adding citrus juice, the vitamin C will help us better absorb the iron available in the tahini and spinach.
Are you also a fan of tahini, if so what are your favorite ways of adding it to your diet?
