Have you ever wondered how to make your very own Tahini paste/butter

What is Tahini

Tahini or tahina is a condiment made from toasted ground hulled sesame. It is served by itself or as a major ingredient in hummus, baba ghanoush, and halva. Tahini is used in the cuisines of the Eastern Mediterranean, the South Caucasus, and the Middle East, as well as parts of North Africa.

Tahini contains more protein than milk and most nuts. It’s a rich source of B vitamins that boost energy and brain function, vitamin E, which is protective against heart disease and stroke, and important minerals, such as magnesium, iron, and calcium.

 

Tahini paste and tahini seeds

It is so quick and easy and the cost of a packet of sesame seeds is virtually pennies against the cost of a store-bought jar of tahini and no nasties.

 

Ingredients to make your very own Tahini paste/butter:

1 cup of sesame seeds
3 tbsp Olive oil you may need a little more.

Method:

A quick toasting of the Sesame Seeds, then into the mini blender
Add 2 tbsp Olive oil, and a quick whizz, scrape down the sides
Now you add another tbsp Olive oil and yet another scrape
You can add a bit more oil if required and a quick whizz and viola your Tahini Paste is made.

How easy is that? I have been making mine for a few years now.  The picture was my first batch.
