Homemade Tahini


  • 5 ½ cups sesame seeds
  • 2 ½ cups olive oil, or to taste
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread sesame seeds on a rimmed baking sheet.


  • Step 2

    Bake in the preheated oven, shaking the baking sheet frequently, until seeds are lightly toasted, 5 to 10 minutes. Let cool, about 10 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Pour cooled seeds and 1 1/2 cups olive oil into a food processor. Blend until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Add more oil and blend until a thick yet pourable consistency is reached.

  • Cook's Note:

    A store with a frequented bulk section is most likely to have fresher, organic seeds.
