Tahini lives under a different name in these parts.

Neri-goma. It comes in white (shiro) and black (kuro). You bet I’ll be rocking some black hummus as soon as I give the white jar a spin.

The container is much smaller than what I expected. It looks to be about a half a cup. Nevertheless, it is tahini!

Rejoice.

  1. I love you too! I can’t describe how happy I am to learn this. Your blog is really helpful for me, since I’d like to eat vegan but have huge problems because I don’t know japanese.
