Chef's Notes

Using toasted sesame seeds for this recipe is not required, however, using toasted seeds helps to create a more uniform and smooth texture rather than a thicker paste. Toasting raw seeds gives the tahini a more intense flavor. Toast seeds at 350°F (180°C) for 10 minutes, stirring and rotating half way through. Be sure to blend this tahini on your blender's highest speed to process your mixture to optimum quality.
