Substitute ingredient of the day
Foodgoat reports that Ziyad tahini sauce tastes just like peanut butter, but for the a lack of a little salt. It makes sense, since I've sometimes seen peanut butter listed as an alternative to tahini in recipes for hummus. I can't confirm, though, since I haven't had peanut butter since ... ever. I had a peanut when I was five, and I had chicken with peanut sauce when I was 21, but those experiences are memorable more for immediate trips to the emergency room than for the flavor of things. Based on the Ziyad tahini though, I don't think I'm missing much on that end.
