Makes about 2 cups
2 cups white sesame seeds
1/4 cup olive oil
Heat a heavy wide-bottomed sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the sesame seeds and toast lightly – about 2 minutes, shaking the pan so they toast evenly. Let cool completely.
Put in a food processor and drizzle in the olive oil. Pulse for 3-5 minutes, or until it’s as smooth as you can get it. Add a little more olive oil if necessary.
Once refrigerated and stored properly, the tahini can last 3 to 6 months.
