      Mezap Tahini Meets Dietary Needs of Veggies

      I always have a jar of Mezap Tahini in the cupboard as we are a vegetarian household. This means we have to make sure we do not miss out on the necessary protein and iron found in meat. Tahini meets this need.

      It is a natural food, a 100% sesame seed puree, and has no preservatives. It is high in essential fatty acids but has no cholesterol. Around a third of a jar will provide 656 Kcal.

      A traditional ingredient of Greek and Middle Eastern cooking, it is used as the basis for dips (humous), spreads, sauces, dressings, and baking. I like to combine it with soy sauce and spread it on toast.

      Once opened it keeps well, with its layer of sesame oil settling on the surface. It just needs a good stir before you use it again. Quite 'gloopy', thick but liquefied, it can become quite messy making a Tahini sandwich!

      An environmentally friendly product - the glass jar and metal lid are recycleable - it does not contain palm oil unlike peanut butter.

      At around £3.69 for a 340 gm jar it is not cheap. But neither is meat, and if this is a substitute then it is good value.
