Check out these super yummy oil-free recipes below:

For a creamier version, add 1 tbsp of tahini or 2 tbsp of lightly roasted sesame seeds.Leave a reply
In the Hummus recipe, is it intended to be ‘tahini or sunflower seeds’ as written, or ‘tahini or sesame seeds’ as it seems to be in the final, instructions, line of the recipe?
“1 ½- 2 tablespoons of tahini or 3 tablespoons of lightly roasted sunflower seeds”
“If using sesame seeds, lightly roast them on low to medium heat in a skillet on a stove. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. ”
I’ve only used tahini in the past, but would love to try using the seed in place. I’m assuming sesame as that’s what tahini is made from.Reply
Peace and Good,
Good catch Ryan. Thanks for letting us know. It is supposed to say 3 tablespoons of lightly roasted sesame seeds. I’ll fix it shortly.Reply
You’re exactly right, tahini is made from lightly roasted sesame seeds. Infact, after lightly roasting the sesame seeds, just place them in the food processor. You do have to stir every couple of minutes but within 10 minutes you have home made tahini, without extra oil or salt.
