Soom Sesame Tahini made with premium Ethiopian white Humera sesame.

It’s not just for hummus.

Ask anybody what you use tahini for and they hem and haw and say, uh, hummus?

In half of the world the tiny sesame seed is a giant in stature. History tell us (in a cuneiform document) that 4,000 years ago the gods drank sesame wine. And Herodotus recorded that sesame was grown in the Fertile Crescent as a source of oil.

It has been the food of Kings and a medicine of “purity” because of its ability to make the body strong. Sesame seeds are a symbol of immortality.

The sesame seed (and thus tahini) is rich in minerals including iron, calcium, zinc and magnesium. Rich in Vitamin E, sesame also has lecithin (which you need to have to absorb the Vitamin E). It is also #6 on the (amount of) protein list of nuts & seeds. You can see why this little seed is amazing.

What does all this mean? Eating tahini can help with liver detoxification, better looking skin, weight loss, fight anemia, and overall help with healthy cell growth!

And it tastes really good too! We have tasted lots of tahini and they varied from “gross” to “eh” to “ok”.

Then one of our local customers came in and shared their favorite Tahini, Soom’s premium Tahini. And it was like the bright light that blasts you when revelation hits you on the forehead! Smooth and creamy, with the wonderful taste that you expect sesame to have.

Don't limit tahini to hummus; it makes excellent sauces and dressings!

The best Tahini is made with the best sesames. And the best sesames are Ethiopian White Humera seeds. Soom Sesame Premium Tahini uses single-sourced Ethiopian White Humera sesame seeds to create their amazingly delicious Tahini.

And don't forget to try Sooms (Chocolate included) sesame spread. Two healthy ingredients come together for you to spread your wings and try on toast. (At least)

Add lemon juice, a dash of salt and pepper and dip your veggies in for the perfect afternoon snack.

Spread it wide on your toast with a squeezable squeeze of honey on top.

Make a crispy salad with croutons dressing with 1/2 cup of tahini, 1/2 cup olive oil, 2 teaspoons of citrus juice, 2 teaspoons of Katz Gravensteins apple cider vinegar, and 2 teaspoon of grated ginger, blended in the blender.

Drizzle it on your sandwich with a touch of citrus juice added.

Tahini matches so well
as a topping for your meat! Mix in a touch of heat with your favorite hot sauce or smoked paprika and spread on your next burger!

As you wind your way up the path of Tahini consider mixing in your favorites. A few of the things that we thought were outstanding. Yuzu Soy Sauce brought citrus and salty soy to the mix, just right savory. Morris Ginger Syrup was like this sweet gingery delish and in a swish it spread like butter! And just plain maple syrup was perfect to transform your next piece of toast!
