Looking at a recipe and recognizing the ingredient with a lot of fat is the first place to start in changing your own recipes. Tahini is all fat. Itís a good kind of fat, but it still has a lot of calories. Fortunately, tahini also has a lot of flavor, so a little goes a long way.
Cayenne is a species of extremely hot chili pepper. It is small to medium sized (about 2 - 5 inches long) and bright red. Most cayenne grown today is dried and ground into cayenne pepper. Buy ground cayenne in small amounts so that it doesn't lose its fresh flavor. As it ages, it turns from a bright pepper red to a duller brownish red.
