Tahini Recipes Roundup Collage with Text

Tahini is great in hummus, but did you know you can also use it for salad dressings and dips, sandwiches, roasted veggies, pasta, smoothies, pancakes, desserts and so much more! Here are 82 delicious and healthy vegetarian (and vegan) recipes that use tahini in an unusual way.

Unless you want to make your own tahini paste, I recommend to use Pepperwood Organic tahini paste that is 100% organic, vegan and unsalted, made from unhulled sesame seeds.

Tahini Paste JarYou can easily make your own tahini paste, just watch the video below:

What Do You Do With Tahini?

You can use your tahini jar in a variety of ways. Here are some examples:

  • Sauces and dips;
  • Main course and sides;
  • Salads;
  • Sandwiches;
  • Breakfast dishes;
  • Drinks and smoothies;
  • Desserts.

You’ll find plenty of inspiration below for each of these categories.

How Long Does Tahini Last?

Unless stated otherwise on the package, keep an unopened tahini jar in a cool and dry place (like pantry) for up to 6 months. Once opened, refrigerate for up to 6-12 more months. Homemade tahini paste can be stored in the same way.

Can You Freeze Tahini?

Yes, absolutely! Freeze it in ice cube trays, then transfer to a freezer bag and seal. Defrost before using and enjoy!
