Have you ever tried tahini? It’s is one of those hidden foods that is so delicious but does not get enough attention. For those who love hummus, you may know tahini as the key ingredient that makes it taste so good!

Tahini Sauce

While tahini can be made at home, I’m all about finding healthy shortcuts, so when I stumbled across Heinen’s organic sesame tahini and I knew I had to try it! If you’re looking to follow an Fx™-approved diet, this is a staple ingredient to keep in your kitchen. My family uses it in a variety of ways, but in this recipe, tahini is used as a dipping sauce that takes grilled vegetables to a whole new level of deliciousness.

These grilled vegetables are super easy to make and perfect for summer. I like to make a nice big batch at the start of the week and eat them all throughout.

The creamy tahini sauce is loaded with flavor and has a nice kick to it! Once you make it, you will always want it in your fridge. It goes great with the fresh vegetables, and can easily be served with grilled veggie kabobs, too!

By Heinen's Grocery Store

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
