I was half way through fixing myself a quick hummus snack when I realized we are completely out of tahini. Oh, no! It totally makes the dish, does it not? A hasty Google search resulted in the following options:
Option #1a: Creamy Off-Brand Peanut Butter that typically gets used to give Dallas the Dog her treats. There is a good chance it is contaminated with a healthy amount of dog saliva.
Option #1b: Chunky Peanut Butter, either traditional or natural varieties were available.
Option #2: Sesame Seed Oil, a questionable internet search suggestion.
Limited to what I had in the house, I opted to take the risk of Dallas spit and nabbed a spoonful of the creamy peanut butter. Then, I thought, “What’s there to lose? I’ll throw in a little sesame seed oil, too!”
Epic fail. The second one this week!
Next time, I’ll just go to the store.
