Vitamix Tahini - OMG!
So I started soaking my chickpeas last night, expecting to do falafel tonight. But a trip to the SafeWay this afternoon showed no signs of the Joyva tahini I used to buy there. The only thing related I could find was some sesame seeds. While I have never done nut butters in my Vitamix, I decided this was the time to give it a try.
Put a bunch in the container and blended on high... had to add about a tablespoon of olive oil to get it to a paste. Then added my standard additions to get it to a dressing (garlic cloves, salt, pepper, lemon juice, water). It was spectacular!
Will never buy prepared tahini again, and am looking forward to making peanut butter.
