Home made roasted tahini
Making tahini yourself is a game changer. It's freakishly expensive in the shops, and dirt cheap and easy to do yourself - but you need a strong blender like a nutribullet. You can also make tahini from other high fat seeds such as sunflowers, macadamia etc.
- 1 cup White sesame seeds
- Toast the sesame seeds. You can do this in the microwave, oven or the stovetop.Microwave: put in a ceramic or glass bowl (Not plastic) and microwave for 1 minute, stir, and then put back in for 30 second intervals, stirring after each round in the microwave, until the seeds are golden and smell delicious.Oven: spread the seeds on a baking tray and bake for around 5 minutes, watching carefully, until golden. Remove from the tray otherwise the hot tray will burn the seeds.Stovetop: Place the seeds in a small sauce pan and cook over high heat, moving or stirring constantly until golden and fragrant. Remove from the pot otherwise the hot pot will burn the seeds.
- Pour the seeds into the nutribullet with the Milling blade, and pour enough oil in to come up to the same level as the seedsBlend until totally smooth.
