Tahini paste is irreplaceable in hummus and widely used for salad dressings and roasted vegetablesSesame seeds have numerous health benefits. They are rich in nutrients, natural oils (omega 3 ad omega 6), vitamins, minerals and organic compounds, including protein, fiber, thiamin, vitamin B6, copper, manganese, calcium, magnesium, zinc and many more. Tahini paste is a mixture of sesame seeds and olive oil, which is known by its salutary effect on the human body. Together they work as a metabolism and immune booster.

If you haven’t tried homemade tahini paste, you should. It’s very popular in the Middle East, Turkey and Greece. You can use it for hummus and other creamy dips, including Baba Ghanoush (eggplant dip), salad dressings, falafel and make different kinds of appetizers with it. It’s widely used as a condiment for fish, seafood, lamb, pork, beef, turkey, chicken, lentils, roasted vegetables and what not. You can add it in noodle dishes, stir-fries, homemade bread, pesto, cookies and brownies to give them a nutty flavor. It’s especially great with salads: mix it with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper and you’ll have an ultimate salad dressing for almost any salad. Here is a very healthy option for you: Healthy Quinoa Bowls with Kale, Carrots and Tahini Turmeric Dressing.

How to Make Homemade Tahini Paste

Homemade tahini is usually made from raw, hulled, unhulled, sprouted, or toasted sesame seeds. Unhulled sesame seeds contain more nutrients and have a richer taste. To make it even more intense, you can toast your seeds. In my recipe I used 5 parts of unhulled sesame seeds and 1 part of black sesame. You can experiment with proportions until you find your perfect tahini paste. For me, it’s the one from the recipe below:
