Day 147

Tahini Broccoli Pasta

While browsing the jam aisle last week for ingredients for the s’mores-a-palooza, I saw a can of tahini. Said sesame paste. I like sesame. And it was with the jams, so I figured it was some sort of spread. When I got back to the office and shared my score with my workmates, they set me straight — after having a good giggle. They even found me a tahini-based recipe for my experimenting pleasure. Not much pleasure, though, since the dish was overwhelmingly bitter. That didn’t seem to add up with what I’d heard, so I did a background check on this suspect ingredient. Verdict? It’s not supposed to be that bitter … at least not after it’s been properly paired. But it could have been an old batch. Someone also suggested that canned tahini is a potential problem. Or I’m just too darn picky.

  1. What a pity! Tahini is such a lovely ingredients but not to worry lots of days left in the calendar for your gastro experiment.
