Easy Two Ingredient Homemade Tahini is absolutely delicious!

Tahini is the glue that holds hummus together! I had previously bought some at the store but quickly saw all of the additives in it so I opted to try to make my own!

This recipe is so simple, it’s only two ingredients! Don’t be afraid to try this out because it is well worth it. Knowing exactly what I am putting into my body is so important and a key to a Whole Foods diet.

This is a must have ingredient in your favorite homemade hummus and is a wonderful addition to my Homemade Cilantro Jalapeño Hummus.

  1. I appreciate this recipe! I made a mess making it, but I love knowing all the ingredients it it! Perfect for the hummus recipes!

  2. Don’t have a cast iron skillet can I use silverstone skillet or the oven to toast the sesame seeds?

    1. Hi Tamara,
      Thanks so much for reaching out. You can use either but the ones that I buy off of Amazon are raw and unhulled.
