Nut-Free Peanut Sauce
Combine with soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, and crushed red pepper. Check labels to be certain that your tahini is nut-free.
Add a spoonful to help bind bean or lentil burger mixture together instead of using an egg.
Drizzle over a bowl of oatmeal topped with sliced bananas, a dollop of yogurt, and maple syrup.
Stir together with lemon juice, olive oil, and minced garlic as a dressing for salads or grain bowls.
Swirl into a pan of brownie batter before baking to balance the sweetness of the chocolate.
