  5. NOTES: Tahini is made from ground sesame seeds and is used as both for its binding qualities and for flavouring; it is rich in minerals, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and iron. Tahini is an ingredient in most hummus recipes. Tamari is pure, top quality soy sauce, and is free from chemicals and preservatives. It can be used for flavouring in place of added salt or stock cubes in soups, vegetable dishes, pies, casseroles and dressings. Tahini and tamari are available at health food stores and large supermarkets.
