Cuisine: Middle Eastern
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Servings: Makes about 1 cup
- 1 cup sesame seeds
- 4 tablespoons grapeseed oil or vegetable oil
Here's how to make it:
- To toast the sesame seeds, put them into a skillet over low heat. Stir constantly until they begin to lightly brown and let off their aroma, about 4 to 5 minutes. Cool the seeds before proceeding.
- Put the cooled sesame seeds into a blender or food processor. Pulse until a sand-like paste forms, about 1 minute.
- Add 3 tablespoons of the oil and blend for about 2 minutes, scraping down the sides a couple times. If you want a thinner tahini, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil and pulse until blended. Season with a little salt, if desired.
- Store the tahini in the refrigerator. Stir well before using.
