Tahini, aka Sesame Paste
- 1 T soybean oil
- 2 T water
- 1 T lime juice (or lemon juice)
- 1 cloves minced garlic
- 1 T chopped oregano
- 1 T sesame seeds
1. Place sesame seeds into preheated nonstick skillet and cook over medium heat until lightly brown (roasted). This usually takes about 5 minutes. Stir constantly to prevent burning. When done, remove from pan onto paper towel, set aside to cool.
2. When done, place seeds into blender/food processor and process for about 30 seconds until floury texture results. Of course, if using a mortar and pestle it will take longer than 30 seconds. It’ll be a few minutes.
3. Add liquid, garlic, and oregano. Puree and/or blend until smooth and of desired consistency.
Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
