This is my second blog in a row using sesame seeds!
I just love their flavor profile and they are a great complement to sweet or savory preparations. The many health benefits of sesame seeds are due to its nutritional content including vitamins, minerals, natural oils, and organic compounds.

Start by skillet-toasting the sesame seeds, as this brings out their nutty flavor.

Chop some ginger, garlic and sweet onion and add flavorings: dijon mustard, miso and soy sauce for a umami bomb… along with honey, rice vinegar, sriracha and the toasted sesame seeds for flavor. Whisk together and drizzle in the oils and you are done! Takes less than 10 minutes.

Works beautiful as a salad dressing – drizzle over your favorite leafy and vegetable creations.
Use as a marinade for proteins, including vegan proteins – will add a blast of Asian tang!
