A great quick fix! I toasted the sesame seeds in a skillet, then put in food processor. My processor didn't quite grind them up enough, but you still get the taste. Thanks!
Thank you so much for posting this! I ran out of tahihi, but I get the seeds and oil from the asian market, and it's much cheaper!
This worked great in a recipe from 101cookbooks.com for hummus. I had forgotten to get tahini and was in the middle of making the hummus before I realized it. I toasted the seeds in the toaster oven and used my immersion blender to get it all nice and smooth. Thanks so much.
I made this with olive oil and just loved it in Charishma's hummus! Thanks Cookgirl! SA:)
I like to make my own hummus but don't like to pay $8 for a jar of tahini that is going to spoil in my refrigerator. I turned to 'Zaar and found this recipe. I was short on time so I placed toasted sesame seeds in my food processor with 2 T regular sesame oil. (I didn't have toasted). I turned the processor on and the seeds sank to the bottom below the blade and would not come up. I proceeded to dump all the hummus ingredients ( # 11424) in the food processor and whirled them all at the same time. The end result is a wonderful hummus brought together by two 'Zaar recipes. Thanks for sharing. This will become my only tahini.
This was a great recipe for making just a little tahini. I have a recipe that calls for it and did not want to run out and buy a jar to sit in my fridge for the next year. I instead bought a package of toasted sesame seeds for 99 cents and made my own tahini. Turned out great! Thanks for posting!
