I’m free! Free from the tyranny of the ten dollar jar of organic tahini when all I need is a spoonful or two at a time! What took me so long?
This quick, easy recipe produces fresh, tasty, toasty sesame tahini for a fraction of the cost!
1 cup raw sesame seeds
2 tbsp. mild flavored oil (I used sesame oil)
Toast sesame seeds lightly in a dry skillet, over medium heat, stirring slowly and constantly, just until slightly brown. Immediately transfer to a small food processor or blender.
Grind until seeds resemble small crumbs. Add a tablespoon of oil and keep grinding, scraping down the sides as needed. Add another tablespoon of oil, if needed to create a creamy consistency. Keep grinding until smooth. That’s it!!
Makes about 1/2 cup of tahini. Store covered, in the fridge.
