    As an ingredient its good.

    looking back (at these eventful few minutes) i'd rather there was more steamed cauliflower with tahini than, as currently, none at all.

    what an ill-thought-out thread title.

    It makes awesome dressings but I could honestly eat it straight from a jar. I mean almond butter also has that liquid but dry quality and most people go nuts (excuse the pun) for that.

    Do you hate houmous am? Do you hate anything made from sesame seeds?

    That was the most thread-related post too!

    I don’t think I’ve tried tahini so what was I supposed to do? I was just supporting my future husband ameraal in his latest endeavour

    anyway fuck off

    I object far more to steamed cauliflower, to be honest.

    I don't really get a semi on for any sort of nut butter either, if I'm honest. If I want a dry mouth I'll go on a drug binge instead.

    Side note: Fuck cauliflower.

    OMG tahini is amazing, I can (and do) eat it by the spoonful.

    I have it on EVERYTHING, savoury or sweet. It may even be one of my FAVOURITE FLAVOURS

    I mean usually you don’t just spoon tahini and eat it as it is. It’s more of an ingredient.

    Tahini as a savoury ”dip” or sauce is delicious.

    Tahini for sweets is awful, because it’s too dry.

    I mean I obviously had tahini in dishes but can’t say I’ve HAD IT RAW.

    BOILED cauliflower though wtf, only acceptable roasted.

    As in, by itself, not as a seasoning or ingredient.

    But you use it in sweets to balance the sweetness (we used to eat tahini with grape molasses back home).

    If we're talking about tahini as a raw ingredient (sesame oil), then it's absolutely indispensable. Without it you could never make the QUEEN of all appetizers: HUMMUS.

    It's also delicious mixed with date syrup.

    Ugh, nothing brings my inner FOB out like Iraqi food.

    Tahini is a gift from the (vegan) gods. I will not stand for this blasphemy.

    I’ve just discovered tahini and cherry jam on toast/ pitta/ white baguette.

    It’s fucking incredible.

    I’m VERY upset by this @ameraal because we normally agree on everything

    but I kinda get it - I think the problem is most restaurants just don’t make it properly and bad tahini is SUCH a disappointment

    also it’s shocking how many places don’t do it. Like, if you’re going to have a posh kebab on your dinner menu (as is now trendy in the U.K.) how do you NOT have tahini as a side option?

    “would you like some cheese on it instead?”

    oh FUCK OFF!

    Technically Tahini is sesame seed butter/paste, not oil.

    On a related note, toasted sesame oil FTW!
