Tahini Paste

Amy Girdley Clarkson


This is not my recipe. This is for Tahini paste which is used when making hummus. I love making hummus at home a lot, much cheaper. I sometimes have a hard time finding Tahini paste so I looked online how to make it myself

2 Tbsp
sesame seeds
1/2 tsp
sesame oil
1/4 tsp
1/4 c
tepid water


1Place sesame seeds in a blender or food processor and grind until smooth. Add sesame oil and salt. Process until combined. With the motor running, add the water in a very slow, steady stream and blend until smooth.

Yield: about 1/2 cup

Note: Sesame seeds turn rancid quickly, so make certain yours are fresh. Be sure to store them away from light and heat and use quickly.
