"I have always loved making hummus for my family (which usually included tahini). When I discovered my son was allergic to soy (which is in most all store-bought tahini) I decided to make my own and it turned out even better than any other store-bought brand! Made as described this recipe is Paleo-diet friendly, SOY FREE, DAIRY FREE, GLUTEN FREE AND GRAIN FREE. Enjoy!"

Toasted the seeds in a dry saute pan on the stove top because it's easier for me to watch their browning that way. Considering the price of tahini at the store, I thought it was fair to make it...

Great recipe! I tasted my sesame seeds on the stove in a dry pan, this was perfect in my humus!

Was wonderful.

I wanted to make my own tahini to reduce sodium. This was very easy and it tasted great! I used it to make a low sodium hummus that also turned out great. Thanks!

Very easy and satisfying. I need to be a bit more vigilant while the seeds are toasting next time (they got a tad brown). The hummus I made is delicious though!

Loved it, but it is kind of expensive to make.

I used this to make the "Real Hummus" recipe on AR. This was easy to make. I needed to add extra olive oil for it to blend properly. Also, I used black and white sesame seeds which gave it a ...

Mine's way darker than the other photos. Thought I might have over toasted the seeds, but it doesn't taste burnt. Actually quite flavorful...

This is bitter, but fills the need for tahini in hummus. Can't find tahini here in my part if Tenneessee. It does take a while to blend it up. I made a half of this recipe (1/2 cup of sesame see...
