Steps To Make Tahini Toast

For Making Tahini Sauce

1. Roast The Sesame Seeds

Take two cups of sesame seeds and roast them. We recommend doing it on the stove to prevent them from burning. Use a dry and wide saucepan over medium-low heat. Then stir constantly with a spatula until the seeds darken in color and become fragrant.

2. Process The Tahini

Let the sesame seeds cool down and add them to the food processor jar. Shut the lid, and then mix until a paste begins to form.

3. Add Oil To Make A Cream

Add two to four tablespoons of neutral-flavored oil like olive oil to the food processor. This will help make the tahini sauce to become extra smooth and consistent.

For Making The Toast

4. Chop The Apples

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Meanwhile, thinly chop the two large apples into crescent slices. Make each slice as much as possible since the goal is to lay them flat on the toast.

5. A Layer Of Tahini

Spread a layer of tahini sauce on each piece of bread. If you have toasted the bread, spread the tahini on the toasted side.

6. Time To Toast The Bread

Once you are done with all the steps, place the parchment paper on your grill tray and place the bread to match the shape as best as possible.

Drizzle 4 tablespoons of honey over the sauce and, layer the apples. Bake this toast for 15-20 minutes until honey begins to caramelize. Then, allow to cool and enjoy.
