You can easily make your own tahini from sesame

seeds. This basic recipe toasts the seeds to bring out

their nutty flavor and uses a food processor to turn

them to paste.

  1. Gently toast the sesame seeds (stirring constantly) in a saucepan on medium-low for 5 minutes, or until slightly golden. Then, let them cool to room temperature.
  2. Once the sesame seeds have cooled, add them to a food processor. Blend on high until the seeds become a paste.
  3. Add the olive oil and blend to create a creamy consistency. If the consistency needs further thinning, add water until it reaches the consistency of a soft paste or thick sauce, according to your preference.
