Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Toast sesame seeds in a dry skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly for about 5 minutes or until the seeds are lightly colored (not brown) and fragrant.
  2. Remove from the heat and let cool for 5 or 10 minutes.
  3. Place the sesame seeds in a food processor or powerful blender and blend until smooth. Our tahini was ready in 10 minutes, although it was quite thick, so we blended it for 5 minutes more to get the perfect consistency (15 minutes total).
  4. Store the tahini in a sealed container in the fridge for one month or even longer.
  5. Use tahini to make hummus, baba ghanoushsalad dressings, savory recipes or as a healthier alternative to oil.
