When you make it yourself you get to control all of the variables. You can play with flavour and texture to suit your needs. It’s so economical and easy that you’ll find yourself ditching the store-bought and opting to DIY from now on.
Yields: 1x small 300g jar
300g/2 cups white hulled sesame seeds, lightly toasted and cooled down.
Extra virgin olive oil
1 small sterilised glass jar
1. Place the sesame seeds into the blender jug and insert the tamp into the lid
2. Blend on nut mode at low/medium speed, using the tamp to push the seeds down into the blades until the oils release and it forms a smooth paste. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides occasionally.
3. For a runnier tahini, add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil and blend on smoothie mode, adding more olive oil until you reach the desired consistency.
4. Use straight away or pour it into a sterile jar. It will keep in the fridge for up to a month.
