What is tahini?

Do you know what tahini is? Do you want to learn how to do it at home instead of buying expensive jars in the store? We’ll tell you all about tahini, what you can use it for (yes, it’s more than hummus) and show you how you can easily make it at home.

Tahin is a paste made from sesame seeds and is a staple in many cuisines, especially in the Mediterranean and the Middle East. It’s vegan, gluten-free, tastes nutty, and is simple to make.

Store-bought tahini is usually made from shelled sesame seeds. This is also our preference, but you can do this with shelled and germinated sesame seeds.

Shelled sesame seeds are the ones you see most often in stores. Here’s a photo of both shelled and shelled sesame seeds. On the left, the shelled seeds are lighter in color. On the right, the shelled seeds are much darker in color and still have an intact peel or outer shell.

In our experience, tahini with shelled sesame seeds tends to have a more bitter taste, while tahini tahini is not as smooth as tahini with shelled sesame seeds.

Ways to use tahini

Probably the most famous way to use tahini is to make hummus. Even though we are huge hummus addicts, we use tahini in many other ways in our cooking.

Here is a list of tips for using tahini other than hummus.

  • Make Baba Ganoush, an amazing baked eggplant sauce that I dare say can beat hummus for our favorite sauce.
  • Make your own tahini salad dressing. Check out this kale, bean and nut salad with tahini sauce.
  • Turn it into a sauce. Try our Tahini Dreamy sauce, which goes perfectly with vegetables or meat. I love it especially on carrots cooked in honey and dressed with chicken salad.
  • Serve the tahini alongside the falafel – try our simple homemade falafel recipe.
  • Use it for dessert. Seriously. Check out these chocolate chip cookies.

Once you have your tahini in the fridge (it lasts more than a month), we bet you add it to your various dishes without our advice!

How to do Tahini in minutes

Tahini is very, very simple to do. If you have ever made a nut butter like peanut butter before you’ll notice it is practically the same process: Grind sesame seeds in a food processor with a little oil until smooth.


Sono necessari solo TRE ingrediants per preparare una tahini.

Sesame seeds – Come ho detto prima, preferiamo usare i Sesame seeds sgusciati. Most often, we will lightly toast the seeds to bring out some of their natural nuttiness, but you can skip this step all together if you’d like.

Oil – To turn tahini into a creamy paste, add a few tablespoons of neutral-tasting oil. Different oils work, try avocado oil, light fruity olive oil, vegetable oil and grape seed oil.

salt it’s an optional component, but I always use it. It just makes the tahini taste better.

Our simple process of creating it

Making tahini is easy and takes just a few simple steps.

Passaggio 1, tostare i Sesame seeds. Adoro tostare i Sesame seeds prima di preparare la tahini. This way the taste is much better. If you intend to cook the seeds, we recommend that you do it on a stove, not in an oven. Sesame seeds are tiny and so they burn very easily.

Per rosolare i Sesame seeds, li getto in una casseruola ampia e asciutta a fuoco medio, quindi continuo a mescolare con un cucchiaio fino a quando i semi non si scuriscono leggermente e diventano fragranti.

Passaggio 2, lavora i Sesame seeds fino a quando non si sbriciolano.Quando i Sesame seeds si sono raffreddati, li gettiamo nella ciotola del nostro robot da cucina, chiudiamo il coperchio e poi lavoriamo fino a quando non inizia a formarsi una pasta friabile.

How to thin tahiniThe food processor turns the seeds into a crumbly mixture.

Step 3, add the oil and blend until smooth. To make the tahini a smooth paste, add a few tablespoons of neutral tasting oil. You can eliminate some of the oil if you would like, but the tahini won’t be as smooth or pourable. To reach a similar consistency as store-bought, we’ve found 3 to 4 tablespoons of oil should do it.

Dopo un’ulteriore lavorazione, qualche sosta per raschiare il fondo e i lati della ciotola, poi ancora un po’ di lavorazione, la tahini è pronta. Extra smooth and ready to use in any recipe.

How to thin tahiniAfter adding the oil and working it for a minute or two, the tahini is smooth and runny.

FAQ: Can I use a blender?

Since the recipe was published, many of our readers have asked if a blender would work in place of a food processor when making tahini. I prefer to use a food processor, but if you have a high-powered blender (like Vitamix) you should be able to use it to make tahini. As you do this, be sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the blender often so that all the seeds end up in the sauce.

Storage tips

You can store the tahini in the refrigerator for a month, maybe a little longer. You may find that it separates after a while in the refrigerator, like natural peanut butter would. All you need to do to fix it is to mix it well.

Tahin is quite popular right now which is YAAY for me, however I still have a lot of questions about it so I thought I’d answer as much as possible here.


It’s simply sesame seeds butter. Just think of it as your peanut butter or sunflower seed butter, but instead of nuts it’s just sesame seeds.

So it’s a paste of white sesame seeds. There are often times where you’ll find fancier versions like toasted sesame tahini. But for the most part it’s just pure sesame seeds ground in to paste.

So like any seed or nut butter, you need to give it a mix because there’s a layer of oil form the seeds. Also the bottom part of your jar will be thicker so it’s always best to mix the jar.

What is Tahin used for?

Many people associate it with that mysterious ingredient used in hummus, which is true, and this latest hummus sauce is proof of that.

Since it’s basically ground sesame, it is in fact a tad bland if you try it on its’ own. That’s why we jazz it up into a sauce with simple seasonings.

How to make tahini from scratch?

Think of it like peanut butter. You’ll need to process sesame seeds until you get a paste like consistency. This may take some time and require a heavy-duty food processor. So it’s best of you can find it at your grocery store.

Should tahini be kept in the refrigerator?

No because it will harden tremendously and you won’t be able to whisk it. I’ve read in some sites where they do recommend storing it in the fridge. However, I must say that my family has been making tahini for years and my grandmother never kept it in the refrigerator.


You’ll start with the sesame paste, and water. The mixture will look curdled and you’ll feel like you messed it up! That’s ok, keep whisking until it becomes smooth once again, which I assure you it will.

  1. First of all, make sure you mix the jar well before using it.

  3. The beauty of this salsa recipe is that you completely control the thickness of the finished sauce, it can be runny as a salad dressing or think like a dip.

  5. Here you need to add some water to thin out this paste. It’s entirely optional how much you’ll need to add. So however you prefer the thickness of your sauce to be is how much you should add water.
  6. Seasoning is very important as sesame is rather bland. So salt and cumin are classic here and just perfect.

Sia che tu macini i tuoi Sesame seeds in tahini o li acquisti in un barattolo, alla fine devi mescolarli. Over time, the oil in the tahini separates and rises, leaving a dry, packaged solid. You have to homogenize the tahini to use it, which requires a lot of grease on the elbows or a little help from a food processor or blender. If you have a jar of tahini you can mix it by hand, but if you have more than a cup or two you can save time with the machine.

A small container or jar

Turn the container of tahini upside down and let it rest for 15 minutes.

Turn the tahini upside down and remove the lid.

Insert the butter knife between the dough and the side of the container where the oil has collected.

Pass the knife through the tahini paste to the outside where the oil has collected while it was on one side. Keep stirring the tahini paste until smooth, meaning the solids and oil are completely blended and smooth. If you have trouble mixing with a butter knife, transfer the tahini to a food processor and stir until smooth. Place the tahini jar upside down on a saucer.

A large container

Open the container and place the hand blender on top of the tahini paste. Turn on the hand blender and push it through the dough and upwards several times to mix the tahini. If you don’t have a hand blender or are worried that the container is so full that it creates a mess, pour the tahini oil into a food processor or planetary mixer.

Scrape the tahini from the container into a food processor or blender with a spoon and spatula. Run hot water over the sides of the container to help loosen the tahini if you can’t dislodge it.

Grind the tahini paste in a food processor or mix on a low level with the spatula of a planetary mixer until smooth. Place the tahini in its original container and place it upside down on a saucer.

I laughed when this question popped up in my inbox as I was just teaching a Friday class at the Easton Public Market that included lemon, honey, and tahini sauce. I was shocked because when I opened the jar of hummus they sell at the market it was the most shallow and thin tahini I have ever come across. I gasped. And it was so delicious that they sold at least half a dozen jars after school.

As always, the answer comes from chef Matthew Robinson of the Culinary Exchange. And he has to do with tahini.

Question: How do you use tahini? Ho provato diverse marche e devo sempre aggiungere olio extra d’oliva per ottenere una consistenza che sia buona da amalgamare con gli altri ingrediants. Am I using it wrong?

How to thin tahini

Answer: Let’s get to the point first. Good. You are not using tahini wrong. I think it is almost impossible. I could only think of a few NSFW ways to use tahini that some might consider wrong, but then I am sure others wouldn’t. So not again.

With this in mind, we should first open a large culinary bubble to get to the bottom of it: Tahin is not only used in hummus. Because it is important? Since tahini is used in many recipes, from thick, chunky hummus to creamy, rich tahini sauces, it’s hard for me to find a recipe where the tahini probably wouldn’t be diluted. Even in a chunky hummus, some smoothness may be appreciated so a thinning of the tahini and chickpeas would be needed either with oil, as you chose, or with lemon juice or even water.

It appears that you are diluting the tahini to make recipes easier. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it takes extra effort. So are you using it wrong? Good. If you are using a recipe, it could simply be that the recipe isn’t written well. Perhaps more account should have been taken of the ease of preparation when drafting the recipe. I think we all know that there are a lot of not-so-good recipes out there and one thing that can definitely be part of a not-so-good recipe is the poor “order of addition” in the methods section. Before the email attack comes, let me tell you I’m not fooling recipe writers, no! They have hard work. I’m just saying. . . (Editor’s note: here I fully agree!)

So why is tahini so thick compared to natural peanut butter? I couldn’t find any studies comparing the separation of the two products, but there may be a few things. Walnuts may be slightly more emulsifiable once ground, thanks to natural emulsifiers. This can be related to the manufacturing process. Different roasting / grinding processes can potentially result in different oil retention properties. Another possibility is the production time and duration. If you have a longer expiration date, it is possible that more of the old product is on the shelves. The longer the product remains, the longer it takes to separate and pack the solids in the product. It can also be something very simple. Peanut butter manufacturers could pack the jars upside down in shipping boxes. Oil separujący przesunąłby się następnie w kierunku dna słoika. When the jar is turned over in the store, the oil will slowly flow back through the peanut butter, keeping it more melted.

If you use tahini a lot, one thing you might consider is making it yourself at home. This way you can add as much or as little oil as you like, creating a tahini that suits your culinary needs. It is quite simple. You can make a bunch and keep it in the refrigerator.

Here’s how to make homemade tahini. Ottieni Sesame seeds sgusciati, bianchi o neri. If you wish, cook them to your liking in a dry skillet over the heat. Place the seeds in a food processor and beat them until they begin to form a paste. Slowly add the neutral tasting oil and continue stirring, taking frequent breaks to scrape the bowl. Continue adding the oil until the tahini reaches the desired softness and texture. If you need a starting point for quantity, try 1 cup of seeds per 3 tablespoons of oil. You could potentially dilute it with sesame oil, but it depends on the source of the oil. Zawsze uważam, że prażone oleje sezamowe są bardzo mocne w smaku, ale to kwestia gustu i z pewnością można by ich użyć. Of course, oil squeezed from unroasted seeds would impart a mild flavor; an oil like this may even enhance a tahini’s flavor. Both roasted and unroasted oil are very stable, so there won’t be any problems with going rancid. Of course, it is best to store it in the refrigerator in a dark container.

If this isn’t of interest and you really want to skip any pre-thinning, you could try two other things. First, make sure the tahini is at least room temperature and that the separated oil is well mixed. Another idea to try is to change the mixing method if possible. If possible, switch to a blender or mini chopper. The extra power can get the job done without the additional pre-thinning work. Of course, always read the recipes in advance and make sure the best order of addition happens.

Tahini is a simple ingredient that has come a long way. Here’s everything you need to know about tahini, including where to find it, how to prepare it, and what to use if you need a substitute.

Some flavors are so distinctive that they never cease to be associated with the region or cuisine. The southern United States uses smoked ham to flavor everything from beans to soups and vegetables. Italians are known for their love of basil: Caprese salad and thick pesto are instantly recognizable as coming from Italy. And in the Middle East we find tahini.

Tahin has been made around the Mediterranean, Middle East, and North Africa for centuries, and many cultures and countries in the Middle East use it as we do salt and pepper — it is a flavoring agent found on the table for every meal.

What is tahini and what is it made of?

Il Tahin è una pasta densa a base di Sesame seeds macinati. Sesame seeds are very high in oil — it makes up about half their weight. Some brands contain additional oil, salt, or other ingredients.

The basic ingredient in traditional Middle Eastern hummus, tahini, is used as a seasoning and thickener in sauces and dressings. It can also be cooked in desserts. Basically, this is the Middle Eastern answer to peanut butter.

What are the types of tahini?

Tahin is available in two types:shelled and shelled. Il tahini sgusciato ha rimosso i gusci esterni dei Sesame seeds, rendendo la pasta di tahini più chiara e cremosa del tahini di risone. Il tahini sgusciato ha meno fibre ed è meno ricco di sostanze nutritive. Il tahini di risone contiene Sesame seeds interi e ha un sapore leggermente amaro.

Plus, so is tahini pasteraw or baked. Raw tahini has a brighter, weaker taste and higher nutrient content than baked tahini.

Tahin is slightly sandy to dark brown in color. Gli stili più leggeri sono fatti con Sesame seeds senza buccia che vengono schiacciati e possono essere arrostiti o crudi. Roasted versions are slightly darker and stronger in flavor than those with unroasted seeds. Le varietà molto scure, spesso vendute in blocchi, contengono Sesame seeds con una buccia. They can be quite textured and grainy, and have a strong, toasty flavor that some find a little bitter.

Tahini nutrition

Tahin has many of the nutritional benefits of sesame intact. Because it’s made from oil-rich seeds, it contains essential fatty acids and is high in calcium, making it a great source of nutrients for anyone avoiding dairy. While tahini provides a good amount of protein and minerals and is high in unsaturated fat, it is also high in calories, so enjoy it in moderation. One tablespoon of tahini is very effective.

How to buy and store Tahini

Yottam Ottolenghi, a famous British chef and advocate of Israeli cuisine, favors Lebanese, Palestinian, or Israeli brands of tahini, which he believes are lighter and more aromatic, and avoids pastas made from more northerly regions such as Greece and Cyrus. After opening, it may be necessary to vigorously mix the oil and sesame paste. He keeps the can in the refrigerator to keep it from deteriorating. Tahini lasts for months, but the oils turn rancid over time. As with any food, the nose knows it – taste it and see if you like it before including it in your recipe.

Stir the tahini well before use as the oil separates during storage.

Where’s Tahin in the supermarket?

In most grocery stores, tahini can be found in the aisle with spices or oils, or in the aisle with ethnic foods.

How to make Tahini

If you want to make your own tahini, the good news is that the process is very simple. Ingredient-wise, you’ll only need sesame seeds, oil, and some salt if you prefer it. Range 1 tazza di Sesame seedson a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F, stirring every few minutes for 10-12 minutes, until it smells good.

Una volta raffreddati, trasferire i Sesame seeds tostati in un frullatore o robot da cucina e aggiungere1/4 cup of oil (we prefer olive oil or sesame oil). Blend until completely smooth, adding salt to taste, and adding additional oil if necessary. Store in the refrigerator in a tightly closed container.

Substytuty Tahin

Do you have a recipe that calls for tahini but isn’t in the fridge? Do not worry. Since it’s basically a seed paste, most peanut butters can be used in a pinch – just make sure you choose an unsweetened jar. Try a spoonful of peanut butter, cashew butter, or sunflower butter, which exactly mimics the flavor of tahini. You can also add a few drops of sesame oil for a similar flavor but it doesn’t help with texture and texture, so it’s best used in combination with a mild peanut butter like cashew butter.

Hummus is a unique dip that many, many people love to add to their daily diet. It’s much healthier than many store-bought sauces and is a common ingredient in many vegan and vegetarian snacks. Its interesting taste is what many people will like.

With that in mind, not everyone wants to settle for store-bought food. A lot of stores cut corners on products, leaving you with foods that don’t taste quite right or don’t have the texture that you are looking for.

Instead of wasting time and money in the shop, there are many people who enjoy a homemade hummus dish.

The problem is that hummus can be a bit of a difficult dish to prepare as getting the texture exactly where you want it can take a lot of work and effort. Some people find the solution easy to spot.

For instance, if the hummus you made was too thick, adding water to it can help give it a bit of an easier texture while still keeping the unique taste.

Tuttavia, se scopri che l’hummus che hai preparato era un po’ troppo sottile, potresti non essere sicuro di quali ingrediants aggiungere o dove mettere l’hummus per addensare un po’.

If you get lost trying to fix your hummus recipe, here are some tips to consider and check out if you’re looking for a thick and satisfying hummus sauce.

Find out what went wrong

The first step in correcting something that went wrong in a recipe is figuring out exactly where something went wrong.

Knowing what happened to a recipe can often make finding a solution a lot easier because you know what the problem is. It is much more difficult to solve a mysterious problem than to simply add a forgotten ingredient.

You should always look back at the recipe you are working with to check reviews and see if anyone else has had the same problem. If people do have the same issue as you, then there’s a good chance that there may be solutions in the comments of the recipe.

This should be your first step in trying to correct what went wrong with your hummus recipe.

Da lì, dovresti pensare a quali ingrediants hai usato, qual era la loro qualità e se c’era qualcosa che potresti aver dimenticato.

For example, the quality of the tahini used in most hummus recipes has a huge impact on how hummus is made, and a succinct tahini can easily lead to runny hummus.

When making hummus yourself, you should always wander on the more conservative side of things. Ciò significa che è molto più facile aggiungere più ingrediants all’hummus per diluirlo se è praticamente duro come una roccia.

You can’t really remove the liquid you’ve already added without drastically changing the recipe.

Knowing where you went wrong, or at least having a good understanding of what the problem is, will help you take a big step in the right direction when it comes to thickening your hummus recipe where you want it.

Solve the problem

Now that you know what you should be looking for and hopefully you should know what happened to the hummus, you can now start trying to fix it.

There are two ways to properly thicken hummus. You can use even more tahini or add more chickpeas.

Both solutions require a bit of guesswork as it can be difficult to know exactly how much other ingredient you will need to thicken the hummus; however, it is possible to get the job done.

Even if you don’t have chickpeas, there are plenty of other things you can use.

The essence of leaking hummus repair is simply adding more solids to help absorb moisture. Usually it will be chickpeas. Se vuoi davvero aggiungere più sapore al tuo piatto, puoi anche considerare l’utilizzo di altri ingrediants.

Almonds, walnuts, pecans, pistachios, almost all roasted nuts and chickpeas can add to the thickness of the hummus, leaving not only the hummus with just the right texture, but a richer, creamier sauce as well.

If you don’t have roasted nuts or can’t add them for dietary reasons, you might also consider using more beans. Many people often use black beans in their hummus to add more texture and texture if they are already too liquid.

Just remember that using only black beans can change the look and is something you need to be prepared for as you won’t have to worry about changing the recipe too much.

During this time, you may also want to consider using white kidney beans to add more substance to your hummus. For them, however, it will be a ratio of how many beans you can add to hummus without exaggerating the flavor.

For every two cups of chickpeas you soak overnight, you should soak about half a cup of white beans in a different container. You should aim for a total ratio of 4: 1.

Not only will this reduce the amount of chickpeas you have to use, but if you run out of it, white beans can be the perfect solution to your runny nose problem. They turn creamy easily, don’t have a completely different flavor profile than chickpeas, and can make the dish much denser than it used to be.

I wreszcie możesz pracować z tahini. Tahin jest głównym składnikiem większości dań z hummusem i można go użyć sporej ilości do zagęszczenia cieknącego hummusu.

You’ll need to be careful, though, because if you’re working with store-bought tahini, using it as a hummus thickener can get expensive pretty quickly.

Remember that tahini is actually quite easy to make, which means that if you really want to keep natural and homemade products and have a lot of sesame to work with, you can make your own tahini to add to your hummus, thickening it all without wasting time. and money to go to the store as much as with a store-bought tahini.

The final solution you can work with might be considered unconventional by some standards, but if you need to thicken the hummus you can be sure it will do the trick.

We recommend that you look for mashed potato flakes. If you are concerned that the “flakes” are too big an obstacle to the texture, you’ll want to mix the flakes to make them mashed potatoes again.

This way, you will add a lot of flavor to the dish and it will also be a useful way to increase the thickness of the hummus so that you have the perfect hummus that you can use for any occasion you need it for.

When it’s hot I love to feast on salads for a light and satisfying dinner. Chicken salads always go well in my family, and since I almost always have a pack of Smart Chicken in my fridge, I make them often.

How To Make Chicken Marinade andTahin Dressing

Start by whipping up the chicken marinade. Since Smart Chicken breasts are already quite tender, you don’t need to marinate the chicken very long.

In fact, lemon juice is a natural meat tenderizer and if left on the chicken too long it will start to cook. As such, I don’t recommend marinating the chicken any longer than 30 minutes. You’ll get a big burst of flavor-enhancement in as little as five minutes!

How to thin tahini

To make the tahini sauce, you simply whisk together creamy tahini (a sesame seed paste) with lemon juice, garlic and salt.

Parliamo degli ingrediants

Tahin – Tahin is a ground sesame seed paste. Think of it as peanut butter, except it’s sesame seeds that are ground rather than peanuts. It is a key ingredient in hummus, baba ghanoush and eastern Mediterranean cuisine. Liquids (like water and lemon) need to be added to tahini in order to thin out the paste.

Lemon – Look for lemons that are completely yellow and slightly soft when gently squeezed. That hint of softness means the lemon is full of juice. This citrus squeezer is the only one you’ll need for the rest of your life.

Garlic – When harvesting garlic, choose a heavy, firm onion with a tight skin. It shouldn’t have any soft spots.
