Tahini Paste



Oven Preheat to Broil

Yields 1 cup

1 cup sesame seeds

Place the sesame seeds on a baking tray and lightly toast under the broiler. Stir often with a wooden spatula.


¼ cup olive oil

1 Tbsp sesame oil

Blend the seeds and oils together with a blender (my immersion blender works best). Blend to a smooth paste.

Cover tightly and store in the refrigerator for up to one month, or freeze in 2 Tbsp portions.


Tahini paste is the key ingredient in Greek salad dressing and hummus.
