While Asian sesame pastes may be hard to find in the states (mostly found in Asian supermarkets), Tahini can be found in Western markets. For this recipe, try making Tantanmen with our Premium Garlic Miso Ramen! Compared to sesame paste, tahini has a light and creamy flavor. Tahini makes a great combination with doubanjiang sauce! If you want more spice, make sure to add more doubanjiang or swirl in some chili oil. Enjoy!
