Sesame Tahini is a paste made from crushed sesame seeds and has quite a nutty taste. There are two main types of Tahini, Hulled and Unhulled.
Hulled Tahini does not grind the whole sesame seed and because of this it does not contain as much calcium, protein and vitamins as Unhulled. Unhulled Tahini is made from the whole sesame seed and it the most nutritionally packed type of tahini. You can use Brown or Black Whole Sesame Seeds. Hulled Tahini is not as bitter tasting as the Unhulled type. Raw Tahini contains more nutrients than roasted tahini.
A basic recipe for Tahini is to grind 1 cup Sesame Seeds in a blender or food processor. Slowly add ¼ to ½ cup oil (Sesame, Olive, Peanut and other oils are used). This will make a thick paste to which you can add garlic, salt, lemon juice and / or buttermilk to achieve desired taste and consistency.  


BENEFITS OF TAHINI -  Tahini is a source of calcium, protein and B vitamins. Tahini is a good source of essential fatty acids. These EFA's are used in helping to maintain healthy skin. Sesame seeds are also a good source of the amino acid Methionine which is a contributor to liver detoxification and helps absorption of other amino acids.


TAHINI USES - Tahini is a frequently used ingredient for people on a raw food diet. It can be used by itself as dip with vegetables as well as being used as a spread on bread Tahini is commonly called a 'peanut butter alternative' but can also be used as a non dairy butter / margarine. Tahini is also a key ingredient in Hummus. Hummus originates from the middle east and is a chick pea based spread. Hummus is made using chick peas, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil and garlic.


Hummus recipe:

1 cup organic chickpeas (garbanzo beans) - thoroughly cooked
1/4 cup Tahini

1 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
