How To Make Homemade Tahini


For 5 people

  • 1 cup of sesame seeds
  • olive oil


Put the sesame seeds in a warm frying pan and fry gently, turning frequently. When they are uniformly golden (or they start to jump), remove from heat.

Put the sesame seeds and olive oil into ULTRABLEND + and select the “nuts” or “pulse” function. Scrape the sides of the blender several times. Add more olive oil until a creamy texture is achieved.


Sesame seeds are extremely rich in calcium and also contain significant quantities of magnesium, zinc, iron, and fibre. Their distinctive yet mild taste can be used to enhance any dish. Sesame seeds also provide a good salt alternative in the form of gomashio (shop bought or home-made).
