Interesting thread! I just looked for tahini at my local grocery store, and couldn't find it. If I am making hummus, couldn't I just add sesame seeds to the to the chickpeas in the food processor?

Va, that's exactly what I do with my hummus.

I keep my toasted sesame seeds in the freezer in between uses to prolong their shelf life.

Tomorrow I'm making tahini sauce which calls for tahini paste but which I'll make with sesame seeds, along with lemon juice, water, garlic, etc in the food processor. The tahini sauce is for garnishing my beef shawarma.
