To make the tahini paste, very much used in the noth of Africa, Greece Turkey and Middle East, we only need two ingredients ;

200 gr of semillas de sesamo  ( sesam seeds)
50 gr. of oil                            ( it can be  sunflower, sesam,olive oil)

You heat up a huge frying-pan to medium/hot temperature, and then put the sesam seeds in and remove so they get toasted all over,and you will notice a very nice scent spreading out of the pan, then they are ready to go, hot in the food-processor, the heat favors the sesame oil to come out, you now get a dense paste, and you make it softer adding the oil.

Can be kept in the fridge for a couple of weeks.
Tahini has quite high levels of calcium,proteins,omega 3 and 6,  that makes it good for vegetarians, and one of the ingredients  to make humus.
