Make your own tahini

What’s a girl to do when it’s a dreary day and she’s craving hummus?

Go to the store and buy some?

Heavens no! She makes her own! But what does she do when she realizes her recipe calls for tahini?

Now she goes to the store.

Nope, she looks up a recipe and makes her own tahini! And you can too, here’s what you need:

1/2 cup sesame seeds

2-4 Tablespoons oil of your choice (I used olive oil)

Put sesame seeds in a pan over medium heat and roast until they are a lovely golden color (you want to bring out all the nutty goodness that sesame seeds have to offer). Place seeds in a food processor with 2 Tablespoons of oil. Blend until creamy and smooth. If the tahini is too thick for your taste, add more oil. If not using right away, place in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.
