Sesame Seeds have a nutty, slightly sweet flavor and aroma that is enhanced by toasting. Sesame seeds are an excellent source of iron, magnesium and calcium. They can be added to salads, breads, buns and muffins — or use the entire package to make Tahini (recipe on back). Tahini is simply sesame paste that can be used to make the Middle Eastern staple, hummus or use it in the cookie recipe on the back of the package for a fruity treat.
Diets rich in whole grain foods and other plant foods low in total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers.
1 pkg (16 oz) Brown Sesame Seeds
3/4 cup Olive Oil
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Pour the sesame seeds on a baking sheet and shake gently to spread evenly. Toast the seeds in the oven for about 10 minutes, stirring a couple times to ensure the edges do not get too brown. Once toasted remove from baking sheet and cool for at least 20 minutes. Once cooled pour sesame seed into a food processor, turn the processor on and drizzle the olive oil into the seeds. This will take about 1-2 minutes, until creamy. You can store the tahini in the refrigerator for about a week. Makes about 2 cups.
