Tahini

Rated as 4.37 out of 5 Stars
3

"I have always loved making hummus for my family (which usually includes tahini). When I discovered my son was allergic to soy (which is in most all store-bought tahini), I decided to make my own and it turned out even better than any other store-bought brand! Made as described this recipe is Paleo-diet friendly, soy free, dairy free, gluten free, and grain free. Enjoy!"

Toasted the seeds in a dry saute pan on the stove top because it's easier for me to watch their browning that way. Considering the price of tahini at the store, I thought it was fair to make it...

I could not get them to blend, I kept add olive oil very little at a time and still nothing.. How long to you have to blend? 3-5 mins?

Great recipe! I tasted my sesame seeds on the stove in a dry pan, this was perfect in my humus!

I ended up using pre-roasted sesame seeds from the asian food aisle and blended it up into a paste following the instructions above. The sesame seeds costed about $3.50 for almost a cup's worth ...

This is so simple. I found some roasted sesame seeds, which saved all that process. About 3 minutes in the food processor, and I was done. I do recommend pulsing it at first, and with a rubbe...

Was wonderful.

I wanted to make my own tahini to reduce sodium. This was very easy and it tasted great! I used it to make a low sodium hummus that also turned out great. Thanks!

I used this to make the "Real Hummus" recipe on AR. This was easy to make. I needed to add extra olive oil for it to blend properly. Also, I used black and white sesame seeds which gave it a ...

Very easy and satisfying. I need to be a bit more vigilant while the seeds are toasting next time (they got a tad brown). The hummus I made is delicious though!
