Easy Tahini

1 ingredient 2 steps, TAHINI! Simple, cost efficient, fresh, and delicious! I have been obsessed with tahini lately. It can be added to hummus, used it as a base to make sauces and dressings or you can dip your veggies in it for a power snack. This recipe calls for just one ingredient, sesame seeds. These little seeds pack a punch! They are flavorful and full of health benefits. Tahini requires 2 simple steps, Roast and blend. That’s it! I purchase my organic sesame seeds in the bulk section of grocery store at $2.79/Lb. (A pound is a little over 3 cups). After I blended the 3 cups it made just about 14oz of organic tahini. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks.
