Tahini recipe step by step

Ingredients and very easy preparation of a delicious homemade tahini paste. You will only need 4 ingredients!If you do not get the sesame already golden, there's no problem. It will be enough to pass it through an iron or a pan, or else bake it for a few minutes. The point is that you have to make sure that it is only toasted and that it does not burn or burn. That would give it a bitter taste, far from what we want to achieve.
  • With the sesame grains still hot, we will pass them by a mortar or by a kitchen robot (I prefer the mortar, because they are more easily converted into pasta).
  • We will finish turning the sesame into a paste with the help of water/oil, and add the pinch of salt.
  • We will grind and mix everything until we obtain a homogeneous paste, and voila, we have prepared our homemade tahini paste.
