My 5 minutes Tahini Recipe


  • 1 x cup Tahini
  • 1 x cup extra cold water
  • Salt
  • Citric Acid (optional)
  • Cumin
  • 1/2 cup of Lemon&Garlic juice (see instructions in my Hummus Recipe)
  • Optional: Parsley (for green style tahini)


We will make the Tahini directly in the container we will store it in using a handheld stick blenders, so pick a container that is tall enough to hold the Tahini and to be used for the blending process

Put all the ingredients into the container:

  • 1 cup Tahini paste
  • 1 cup of extra cold water
  • ½ tbsp salt
  • ¼ teaspoon citric acid (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • The Lemon & Garlic juice.
  • Tip: For more of a “green Tahini” style, add about a handful of parsley leaves into the container.

Blend and mesh with the stick blender for a few minutes, taste and add spices as needed.

If the consistency is not liquid enough add a small amount of cold water and keep running. The texture should be smooth silky and the consistency should be semi-liquid like that of a pancake’s batter.

Enjoy with some Hummus!
