Tahini Recipe

  1. Warm 150 gr raw sesame seeds in a large steel pan. Just warming every sesame seed will be enough for making tahini. Don’t roast them until all of it turns brown. Using a steel pan is important as it has no coating, not release harmful gases at high temperatures. You can use a cast iron pan as well for browning.
  2. Add the sesame seeds to the food processor while they are still hot.
  3. Pulse for about a minute and add 3 tablespoons of hazelnut oil. You can use grapeseed oil or sunflower oil as well but prefer seed oil to olive oil for this recipe.
  4. After working food processor for another 3 minutes your tahini will be ready to enjoy. First, the texture is going to be sand-like. Don’t give up on that stage and continue. After enough patience, your tahini is going to be creamy and dreamy.
