Homemade Sesame Tahini

Sesame tahini is a staple of the vegan pantry–and you can make it at home! It will not be quite as smooth as tahini from the store, but that’s okay.

Featured in Blog Post

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: makes about 1 cup

Prep Time: 10 minutes   Cook Time: 5 minutes  


1 cup sesame seeds, hulled or unhulled

1/4 cup olive oil


Spread sesame seeds on an ungreased cookie sheet and toast at 350-degrees for 5 minutes. (Don’t burn.) Let cool briefly then place in a small food processor. Add olive oil a little at a time and process till smooth (or as smooth as you can get it). Turn it off every little bit and keep pushing the mixture down in the processor with a knife then blend again. You can double or triple the recipe–sesame tahini keeps well in the refrigerator for weeks. Use in dressings, sauces, hummus, falafel, etc!
