Roasted Tahini - who carries it?

My favourite hummus is made with ROASTED tahini, and I used to be able to find it at Whole Foods any my local organic food store. I know that I can use the regular tahini (sesame paste), but it just doesn't do it for me.

Anyone know where I can get some in Vancouver?

  1. i'm guessing whole foods but...... the price would no doubt test your love of it

    1. Try Mediterranean Specialties on Commercial Drive or South China Seas Trading Co.

      Chinese or Japanese roasted sesame paste will probably work as a substitute if you can't find it.

      1. Maybe check out Pars? They have a store in North Van and one near Lougheed Mall in Burnaby.
