Taste Test: Soom Tahini

41-S+2yTPqL

Not all tahini is alike and there is something really special about Soom Tahini brought to you by The Soom Sisters. Their story goes like this:

“Soom Foods is here to Open Sesame! We are a Philadelphia-based, women-owned business of three “Soom” sisters— Shelby, Jackie and Amy— passionate about providing high quality, delicious and nutritious sesame products.

Our company vision started when Jackie’s husband, Omri, an international tahini expert, introduced the sisters to the unique flavor of this tahini made from Ethiopian sesame seeds. And when the sisters tasted Omri’s mother’s tahini carrot cake, they were inspired to introduce this sesame treasure to the American market as the next super food.

And Soom Foods believes in health, sustainability and philanthropy.”

This is my kind of company and their tahini is awesome!

The sesame tahini is just plain tahini perfection. The taste is mellow and almost sweet but not really. It’s better than any tahini I have ever had. I’m not kidding. Usually I just throw tahini in with hummus and that’s about it but there are so many benefits to eating tahini. It is full of protein, high in calcium, and Vitamin A. I really wanted a tahini I could get behind.

And well, then there is the chocolate version. Dessert tahini. It is better than Nutella. Let me say that again. It is better than Nutella! It is a great way to get a quick and healthy chocolate fix.

Hummus. Check.

Roasted cauliflower with tahini and date syrup. Check.

Salad dressing. Check.

Eat chocolate tahini right off the spoon. Check.

I need to figure out other ways to use this stuff! Here is a recipe I adapted from the Soom site for lemon tahini dressing. It is really good.

Lemon Tahini Dressing
2 lemons
2 tablespoons Soom tahini
1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Juice the lemons. Whisk everything together all of the ingredients. Serve over your favorite salad. Enjoy!
