  • 4 cups hulled sesame seeds
  • 3 tbsp olive oil


  • Gently toast the sesame seeds (stirring constantly) on medium low for 5 minutes, or until slightly golden. Then, let them cool to room temperature.
  • Once the sesame seeds have cooled, add them to your Vitamix. Blend on high for one minute, using the tamper to push the seeds into the blades, creating a tahini paste.
  • Add the olive oil and blend for another minute to create a creamy consistency.


  • The recipe makes approximately 2 cups of tahini.
