Sesame seeds 50g
Sesame seeds are small, oil-rich seeds that come from the sesame plant. They have a nutty flavor and a crunchy texture.
Some possible ways to use Sesame seeds are:
- As a topping: You can sprinkle sesame seeds over salads, soups, stir-fries, breads, or desserts to add some crunch and flavor. You can also toast them lightly in a dry skillet to enhance their aroma and taste.
- As a paste: You can grind sesame seeds into a smooth paste called tahini, which is a key ingredient in hummus, baba ganoush, halva, and other Middle Eastern dishes. You can also use tahini as a spread, dip, dressing, or sauce for various foods.
- As an oil: You can extract oil from sesame seeds by pressing or roasting them. Sesame oil has a high smoke point and a distinctive flavor that makes it suitable for frying, sautéing, or drizzling over dishes. Sesame oil is also used in traditional medicine and cosmetics.
- As a candy: You can make candy from sesame seeds by mixing them with sugar, honey, or other sweeteners and forming them into bars, balls, or clusters. Sesame candy is popular in many countries, such as China, India, Turkey, and Greece.
