Hope that helps
Well, the thing is is that I don't like the flavor of peanut butter in savory foods. I had egg rolls once at a chinese restaurant that had peanut butter in them and they were awful. I don't want a nutty taste at all.
I guess I'm just wondering what I could use that has the consistency of peanut butter, but not the nutty taste.
Does tahini taste nutty? I've had hummus before and it didn't really taste nutty to me.
I may be overthinking this entire deal.
