Make this yummy nutty tahini paste at home in no time and enjoy it with Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines.


  • 1 cup sesame seeds
  • 2 Tbsp neutral-flavored oil, such as vegetable or light olive oil
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup water


    1. Add sesame seeds to a pan over medium-low heat and toast, stirring constantly for 3-5 minutes or until the seeds become fragrant and lightly brown-colored.
    2. Let the seeds cool down and then transfer them to the mixer grinder and process until you get a crumbly paste.
    3. Then add oil and water. Process again until you get a paste with a smooth consistency.
    4. Store the tahini in an airtight jar for up to a month. It goes so well in dressings, dips, and spreads such as hummus.
