Humus

You need to make the Tahini and then use a bit of it to make the humus and store the rest of the Tahini in a clean jar in the fridge.

Tahini

Ingredients

4:1 sesame seeds:olive oil by volume

I typically use 200ml of seeds to 50ml of oil, it is difficult to blend less.

Method

  1. toast seeds on tray at 170C for 15 minutes. Turn seeds every 5 minutes to prevent burning
  2. blend seeds + half oil until starts to form paste
  3. add remaining oil, blend to fine paste. depending on the machine this can take a long time and much scraping down of the blender. Worth it though, as this makes enough for quite a bit of humus
