Tahini

A vital ingredient to hummus,  this sesame paste is very versatile and can be used as a base for salad dressings, sauces or in Spicy Szechuan Noodles.

1/2 cup sesame seeds, roasted and cooled
2-4 tbsp. olive oil
pinch of sea salt

To roast sesame seeds, place in a single layer on a baking sheet and put into a pre-heated 375 degree oven.  Toast for approximately 7-8 minutes,  depending on how dark you want the seeds.  I like mine still slightly blonde.  Remove from oven and let cool.  Place the sesame seeds in a food processor or spice grinder, pulse until finely ground. Add the olive oil and salt and process until a paste forms. Store the tahini in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 months. Makes 1/3 cup.
