Our easy creamy Thermomix Tahini is so much better than store bought versions and is made for a fraction of the cost. Use it in dips, dressings, spreads, salads and so much more.
I love making my own Tahini in the Thermomix and find it really therapeutic. It's amazing that these little seeds are ground to become a wonderful thick and creamy paste in just a few minutes with the addition of some neutral flavoured oil.
I use it most to make Thermomix Hummus and salad dressings but there are endless possibilities with this versatile Middle Eastern delight.
The nutty flavour can be used instead of nut butters in vegan baking which is handy for nut allergy sufferers. Tahini is also popular among health fanatics as it's a great source of healthy fats, vitamins and minerals.

- Scrape down the bowl and blend again for 1 min/speed 6, repeat this step until the Tahini is nice and creamy.
