Lemon & Thyme Tahini

Ingredients:

  • Sesame Seeds
  • 1 peeled lemon 
  • Thyme (to taste)

Method: Add ingredients to Vitamix (or other high speed processor) and Blend!

We have been absolutely so excited about making our own homemade organic tahini, it’s so difficult to try and find it in the shops here in the UK. Tahini is scarcely available in supermarkets and organic tahini is even more scarce and so we realise,  just like everything else, if you can buy it… you can make it šŸ˜‰ 

We couldn’t believe how simple tahini is to make, it consists literally just of blended sesame seeds, (nothing our trusted Vitamix can’t handle!) and so after a wholefoods delivery of…..

…just a little delivery of sesame seedsšŸ˜Š We were good to go! 

To make tahini you simply need to blend sesame seeds! Here we go, half the jug full…

  

The mixture can warm up so you’ll need to open the lid, give it a stir and leave it to cool down intermittently.

The first time we made plain tahini we decided it was a little too thick and a little too plain for our liking and that’s how we happened upon this fantastic recipe! 

We added an entire peeled lemon, a good dash of thyme and a splash of mineral water and after Some blending later…

Voila!   


 Oh it tastes so good – you just have to try this – you’re very own of lemon and thyme sesame cream ‘cheese’. 

The lemon smell and creamy texture reminded us very much of lemon buttercream and suddenly – like a lightbulb lightening flash moment  we thought – Why not use our icing tool!? 

Oh swirly swirl… Mmhhmm   

Well I say! Who said salads couldn’t look as pretty as cake šŸŽ‚!  

  
We hope this post will inspire you to dress up your dressings and salads. 

Enjoy! JA ladies x
