The exceptional nutty flavour the rare seeds create is captured perfectly in Black Tahini. Nutritionally, they’re also formidable, with only a third of a cup providing the recommended daily allowance of calcium. It has the same versatility as regular tahini, but its richer, deeper flavour and beautiful colour make it stand out.
What Is Black Tahini? How Does Black Tahini Differ From Regular Tahini?
In contrast to traditional tahini, which uses white sesame seeds that have had their hulls removed, it is created with black sesame seeds that have not had their hulls removed. Compared to white sesame seeds, these have a more robust flavour and a slightly bitter taste; they have a nutty flavour but nearly a “burnt” taste.

The black tahini isn’t a drop-in replacement for the white tahini, and its uses aren’t the same. Black hummus and sesame latte are just two examples of how wonderful it is to try something new.
Putting your finger on the texture of black tahini isn’t easy. The sesame hulls make the mixture extremely thick, almost tar-like. However, it is precisely why it works so well in baked goods.
Black Tahini: A Simple Recipe For Homemade Perfection
In contrast to my white tahini, the black variety doesn’t call for toasting the sesame seeds. Since the seeds’ natural oils are released during toasting, making them easier to combine, one can add more sesame oil to the recipe.
Black tahini may be created with just two ingredients and a couple of minutes in a high-speed food processor or blender. That’s all you need to get a crumbly paste and grind them down.
The next step is to add the sesame oil and blend again until a uniform consistency is reached. A thinner paste can be achieved by combining for extended periods. It should be pointed out that the texture of this tahini is different from that of regular white tahini, which is typically smoother.
For What Purpose May Black Tahini Be Used?
Using black tahini in your cooking will give it a gorgeous black colour and a deep nutty flavour. It works wonderfully in savoury applications like hummus, salad dressings, sauces and sweet ones like ice cream, cupcakes, brownies, and other baked goods.
