Easy Frugal Tahini Recipe

Don’t buy Tahini again! It’s so easy to make! We love making middle eastern foods like hummus. We purchase raw sesame seeds at our local bulk food for $1-2/lb.

  • 5 cups sesame seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups oil (olive,canola,or mixture)
  • salt to taste, if desired.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toast sesame seeds, stirring often, till they start to smell toasty.

Cool for 20 minutes.

Pour sesame seeds into a food processor and add oil. Blend for 2 minutes. Check for consistency. Tahini should be thick but pourable. Add salt if desired. Taste.

Yield: 4 cups
Store in refrigerator in a tightly closed container. It will keep for up to 3 months.
