With this recipe, you can make tahini paste at home! I will show you two ways to make homemade tahini paste which you can use as a basic ingredient for many recipes.
Servings 1 jar (~ ½ cup)
- 1 cup (150g) sesame seeds hulled or unhulled
- 2 tbsp neutral oil mild olive oil, canola oil
Roast the sesame seeds for about 5 minutes in a pan over medium heat. They should only be lightly golden, not brown. Make sure to stand by as sesame seeds can burn very quickly.
Transfer to a bowl and let them cool down for about 30 minutes. Place in your fridge or outside in winter to speed it up.
Blend in your food processor on high speed for one minute. Add two tablespoon of neutral oil and blend for another minute until you have a smooth tahini paste. Transfer in a glass jar and store in your fridge for up to at least one month.
- Every food processor is different and some work better than others. If your tahini doesn't turn out smooth, you can add more oil and blend again.
- Don't use less than 1 cup sesame seeds in a food processor. Otherwise, he has trouble to blend, and you need to scratch down the seeds a thousand times.
