Making tahini at home is easy and much less expensive than buying it from the store.

At home you can do it according to your preferences – you can make it more liquid or thicker. Today I made mine thicker. If you do not like it, increase the amount of oil until you get the desired consistency. Tahini can be kept in the refrigerator for a month.

Ingredients

  • 100 g sesame seeds
  • 2-4 tbsp canola oil
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

  • Add sesame seeds to a wide, dry saucepan over medium-low heat and toast, stirring constantly until the seeds become fragrant and very lightly coloured (not brown), 3 to 5 minutes. Careful here, sesame seeds can burn quickly. Cool them completely.
  • Add sesame seeds into a food processor then process until a crumbly paste forms, about 1 minute.
  • Add 3 tablespoons of the oil then process for 2 to 3 minutes more, stopping to scrape the bottom and sides of the food processor a couple times.
  • Check the tahini’s consistency. It should be smooth. You may need to process for another minute or add an additional tablespoon of oil.
  • Taste the tahini for seasoning then add salt to taste.
  • Process 5 to 10 seconds to mix it in.

Bon Appétit!
