- 1 cup sesame seeds
- 1-3 tablespoon neutral flavored oil*
- Place the seeds in a skillet over medium heat and toast for about 5 minutes until some of the seeds turn brown. Stir continuously so that they don't burn!
- Pour the seeds onto a plate and let them cool completely.
Once the seeds have cooled, place them in a food processor fitted with the S-blade and process until the seeds breakdown into a moist, sandlike texture. Use a spatula to push down the side of the processing bowl.
- Drizzle in the oil and continue to process until the seeds start form a paste. Continue to process, stopping occasionally to push down the sides of the bowl. After a while you'll end up with tahini!
*The more oil you use the more smooth and runny your tahini will be. I only used 1 tablespoon and I ended up with a thicker paste.
Store the tahini in an airtight container in the fridge. Just like natural peanut butter, it should last for a long time!
