Easy to Make Healthy Tahini | Tahini Sauce from Scratch

How to make Healthy Tahini / Tahini Sauce 

Hello Friends,
          I have prepared this yummy and tempting tahini sauce. Tahini is made of ground sesame seeds and is thought to be one of the oldest condiments in the world. It can be used as salad dressing, marinade, and even as a cooking sauce for meat. Tahini is a staple of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine, and it’s used as a primary ingredient in recipes like hummus, baba ganoush, and as a dip all on its own.
          It's extremely versatile and can be used for cooking sweet and savory dishes. Even better, it’s packed with essential micro and macronutrients. A tablespoon serving of tahini adds 81 calories to your meal plan. While you can consume tahini by itself, it is more commonly found as part of a larger recipe, your total caloric intake may be lower or higher, depending on the recipe.

  • Sesame seeds 1 cup, dry roasted

  • Dry roast sesame seeds until they are lightly colored for about 3 to 4 minutes on medium to low flame.
  • Transfer the roasted sesame seeds to a plate or tray and let them cool completely.

  • Roasting of raw sesame seeds gives the tahini a nuttier flavor.
  • If you want tahini thinner, just add more oil.
