In my household, no meal is complete without the perfect sauce to complete it. For those who like theirs with a little kick, Mighty Sesame Co has launched its first-ever harissa flavored tahini, giving shoppers the freedom to spice up nearly anything from meat to dressings and dips.
The new tahini variety features a delicate blend of 100 percent natural harissa spices, offering a spicy kick and a distinctive aroma, according to a press release. Harissa is a paste created by blending spices and herbs with roasted hot red peppers, resulting in a taste that can range from hot to mild, and from smoky to sharp depending on which ingredients are incorporated. The fragrant and spicy chili paste is most often combined with garlic, olive oil, cumin, coriander, caraway, and mint to achieve a special Mediterranean flavor.
This new Harissa variety is organic, vegan, halal, OU kosher, and is gluten- and dairy-free. Similar to all of Mighty Sesame’s tahinis, the protein-packed paste comes ready to use after just a shake and a squeeze of the container.
Mighty Sesame has also partnered with renowned, tahini-obsessed foodservice expert Chef Gregg, who has developed innovative tahini-based recipes for every meal. Among the recipes Chef Gregg is urging shoppers to try is his new Subtle Spice Harissa Tahini Dip.

The Harissa tahini is a result of truly dedicated experts who take care in the choosing of seed varieties, storage method, screening, meticulous peeling, roasting, and grinding that is necessary to create such a tantalizing product. Mighty Sesame sources its sesame from Ethiopia, and trades sustainably with producers to ensure fair wages from farmers.
