The paste is high in vitamins B and E, as well as magnesium, iron, and calcium. Sesame seeds first arrived in Israel via ancient Persia, where they were regarded sacred food. Sesame products were so popular that they were solely reserved for royalty, and tahini quickly spread to India, Africa, and Asia.
Today, it is still a very popular spice in many countries, including Greece, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, and Egypt. For a healthful and tasty treat, combine it with date syrup or chocolate powder.
Roast the sesame seeds for a maximum of 5 minutes in a non-stick pan. Be careful, stir continuously so they don’t burn because they will become very bitter.
Let the seeds cool completely, then grind them preferably with a blender, a chopper or an electric grinder.
Add the oil, garlic, lemon juice, salt and mix again until you get a smooth and homogeneous paste.
Tahini can be stored in the refrigerator, in a jar with a lid, even for 2 months.
Enjoy, Good Appetite!
