Start early, the seeds roast all day for this recipe.


1.5 cups sesame seeds
2 T oil (grapeseed or olive oil)
pinch of salt


Set your Solavore Sport out in the sun to preheat.

Pour sesame seeds into a roasting pan or sheet pan that fits in the oven. Place the pan in the oven and let the seeds roast many hours, through the peak of the midday sun.

Place roasted seeds and salt in a food processor and process for about 30 seconds. Slowly add oil and process until it forms a smooth paste.

Store tahini in a glass container in the refrigerator. It will stay fresh for about one month.

Your homemade tahini is perfect for use in our Roasted Beet Hummus and Moroccan Spiced Roasted Carrot Hummus recipes.
