Make your own tahini (sesame paste)

Must Try

Not only is it the base for many Middle Eastern dips and seasonings (how about hummus ?), tahini is perfect for marinating your favorite cut of meat or fish, or even seasoning your dressing. 


For 1 large pot

  • 180 grams sesame seeds
  • 100-200 ml olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Lemon juice

How to make the tahini (sesame paste)

Preheat your oven to 175 degrees and spread the sesame seeds on a baking tray lined with baking paper. After a few minutes, shake the seeds and roast them until golden brown and fragrant. Let the seeds cool slightly.

Place the sesame in a small food processor or blender along with a dash of olive oil and puree. Regularly scrape the edges down with a spatula and add extra oil until you reach the desired consistency.

Season the tahini with a little sea salt and possibly a squeeze of lemon juice. Store the tahini in a sterilized jar and refrigerate for up to a month.
