    Astra7, I have been looking for a good recipe for hummus. What is Tahini? Is it easily obtainable in the United States, like at a Walmart or similar grocery store?

      Tahini or sesame paste is a paste of ground sesame seeds used in cooking. You can purchase Tahini from the following places: bakers-box-inc. Covitality eBay Kevala My Random Store Organic Needs Sears Swanson Health Products The Flaxseed Store The Pennsylvania Flip Walmart Also check your local world grocery store.
