Did you know?
Sesame seeds contain an array of healthy nutrients including essential fatty acids and amino acids.
A good source of protein and key minerals, they are a great addition to any diet (as long as you’re not allergic!).
I recommend finding raw sesame seeds and toasting them yourself at home. It’s easy and gives you the best-tasting toasted sesame seeds.
Toast in a skillet:
Set a small skillet on your stovetop over medium heat. When the skillet is hot, add your sesame seeds. After 30 seconds, swirl the sesame seeds with a wooden spoon so that they brown evenly for about 3 minutes. Lower your heat if you see smoke or the seeds are browning too much. Allow to cool. Enjoy!
