Tahini is in the meat and alternatives food group. It is made from sesame seeds and contains protein. It is high in calcium, omega 3 and 6, Vitamin B1 and iron.
Many adults find tahini by itself to have a somewhat bitter taste, but I find introducing it to kids early allows them to accept the taste without bias. You might be familiar with tahini as an ingredient in homous.
So, how do you serve tahini? Try spreading it thinly on fruit and vegetables, mixed with pasta or on bread, corn thins, etc. If you want to try an great recipe with tahini, look no further: sesame noodles
