not only delicious but SUPER easy
HOMEMADE TAHINI COULDN’T BE ANY EASIER TO MAKE, WITH ONLY TWO INGREDIENTS, IT’S DELICIOUS AS A DIP ON ITS OWN OR USED IN SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE RECIPES!
Tahini is so easy to make on your own with only 2 ingredients, its better and cheaper than store bought and this way you aren’t left with a huge jar that goes to waste!
I love making homemade hummus so much, because you can season it how you want, and it’s the perfect quick, easy and healthy snack to make at home. My only problem is I don’t like buying a big expensive jar of tahini when you only need a small amount for your homemade hummus. That’s where homemade tahini comes in – I can whip up just a small cupful and have just enough to make about 2 to 3 batches of homemade hummus.
So let’s get to it….
What you need:
- 1 cup sesame seeds
- 2-4 TBS neutral oil (like olive oil, grape seed oil or canola oil)
** I like the taste better with grape seed oil but do you**
I told you super easy right….
What you do:
- (Optional) Toast your sesame seeds over medium heat on the stove top for about 5 minutes, stirring regularly (they burn fast), till they turn a light golden color. Allow seeds to cool for about 30 minutes.
- Blend your sesame seeds in your blender (twister jar is best) until a crumbly paste is formed.
- Add in 1 tablespoon at a time of oil, until you get the thinness of the tahini that you like (that was 2 for me).
Best news ever is that you can keep tahini in a sealed container for up to 1 month… win!
