A little tip for the Bīs
Lots of seeds and oils are avoids and they mess up my body way more than avoid veggies or meat !
and while butter/ghee and olive oil in many ways suits me and my cooking fine -
I do miss tahini, and sesame seed when I cook lebanese etc food
Yesterday I decided to do eggplant dip
It calls for baked eggplant, lemon juice, tahini, garlic and olive oil- spices
Instead of tahini and olive oil I used walnut oil and it was really good- I did not miss the tahini at all. BUT it has to be cold pressed walnut oil or the taste wonīt be nutty enough -( or healthy enough)
I have tried walnut oil in humous ( made with dry butterbeans/limabeans) as well and it is pretty good.
Even in Corean food - in dips it is a good substitute - BUT I still miss the crunchyness of the seeds...
