Sesame Butter

By: Elna Botes van Schalkwyk
For those who are allergic to nuts, here is an option for enjoying vegan butter made from sesame seeds.

1 ½ cups unhulled sesame seeds
¼ cup sesame seed oil
1 tbsp. raw, organic honey (optional)
  1. Place sesame seeds in a shallow pan and roast at 350ºF for about 20 minutes.
  2. Cool and place in a blender. Cover and blend on medium speed until the seeds are finely ground. 
  3. Add the oil (and honey if used) slowly, blending and stirring until creamy.
You can also buy Hemp seed butter at your Health Shop – it really tastes very nice! You can also dilute the seed-butter with an equal amount of chia gel.
