I decided to tackle the art of making tahini. I came to find that it is very simple to make and much cheaper than buying it at the grocery store. Best of all, it only requires two ingredients.
2 cups Sesame Seeds
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
In a bowl coat the sesame seeds with the olive oil. Spread out the oil coated sesame seeds on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for 8 mins. Bake just until they begin to brown. Remove from oven, allow to cool. Put the baked sesame seeds in the food processor and blend until they are smooth. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. Tahini is great to use in any hummus recipe.
Have a blessed day!
