Do you have a jar of tahini sitting in the back of your fridge, just waiting for the next time you feel up to making hummus? If you do, then you know the odds of that jar going bad before you use it are pretty high. Because as good as hummus is, most of us don't want to eat it everyday.
The good news is: you don't have to overdose on hummus to get through your tahini. There are many different tahini recipes you can turn to that don't involve chickpeas -- from chicken shwarma drizzled with tahini sauce to deviled eggs with a sesame twist. So if you don't have a jar of tahini waiting for you, you just might want to go out and get some.
