  • 1 Food Processor  I love this one by Cuisinart


  • 2 Cups Sesame Seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons Neutral Oil I recommend using avocado oil, or even sesame oil for a more concentrated sesame flavor!
  • 1 Pinch Sea Salt


  • Start by adding your sesame seeds to the bowl of your food processor, and process until the sesame seeds take on a sand-like texture.
  • Next, add in the oil and salt and process until smooth.
  • Taste and adjust the oil and salt as needed - if you like a more "liquidy" tahini, you can add in more oil. If you like it more paste-like, then use less. It's all about your personal preference!
  • Once your tahini is done, transfer it into an airtight container and store it in the fridge. It should stay good for 1-2 months!
