Why without tahini?
Tahini or even tahin, tahina, tehina or tahini is sesame seed paste. In fact, they are simply crushed sesame seeds to which water and a little oil are added. This cream has many nutritional benefits such as the provision of calcium for example or even phosphorus.
However, tahini is also a big allergen. Indeed, sesame is one of the most common allergens and this allergy is much more common than you think! In addition, it is impossible to find sesame in France. Hummus without tahini is better!
This is why at Culinare we decided not to put sesame seed tahini in our hummus. But replace it with roasted and then crushed sunflower seeds. This is why we have hummus without tahini.
