I don't like tahini and as a result I don't eat Hummus. I asked myself how do I not like tahini and I like sesame seeds? I'm sure it has to do with the raw tahini they sell in stores. I decided to grind the sesame seeds with water and good stuff. It took some time to grind to a smooth texture but it paid off and big time.

Let's start with the fact that you don't really need to buy raw tahini. It is possible to make ready to eat tahini from sesame seeds. The process is so easy and fast. I did everything straight in the blender, because I have a strong blender. For those who do not, before grinding the sesame seeds in a coffee / spice grinder.

Now I'm in love!!!!

 1 cup seseme seeds

 2 clove of garlic (for garlic lovers you can put more/or less)
 1 tsp sugar (optional, I don't like my tahini very bitter)

Put all the ingredient in a blender and mix until ready (anyone who does not have a strong blender will have to grind the sesame seeds first in a coffee / spice grinder).

Option 2:
Toast the sesame seeds first for 2-3 minutes on a dry skillet and then continue with the process.

Option 3:
Use whole sesame seeds, and soak them in water for a night before preparing.
