I am with Claire. I prefer to make sesame paste of my own. It is healthier and more fragrant and I have less waste (Tahini paste can go rancid quickly).

Toast white sesame seeds till they have a slight color. Toast it on low. Put them in a coffee or spice grinder and powder. Mix them with a tiny bit of water (I don't use any oil expect a tiny bit of olive oil when I make hummus with it) to make a paste and then use it in the recipe as directed. Much fresher.
