Keyword: easy, easy vegan pasta, quick, sesame seed butter, tahini

  • 2 cups sesame seeds
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil *Optional* I typically would not recommend oil added into any butter, but this is a huge preference to many tahini paste┬álovers!


  • You can simply process/blend the sesame seeds all natural, but roasting them in a skillet does WONDERS for flavor.
  • You will need a dry cast iron skillet or a heavy non-stick skillet. Heat over medium and add the seeds. Stir frequently until they begin to brown and then remove immediately and pour into blender/food processor with extra virgin olive oil (if using). Process/blend until nice and creamy


Store in a glass jar for up to 4 weeks in the refrigerator.
