Daily Inspiration

What’s inspiring me today.

Sesame seeds.

Words can’t describe my love for sesame seeds (hello, sesame seed bagels!).  I find myself incorporating them into many of my dishes, both savory and sweet.

In fact, one of my favorite easy-as-pie recipes is cucumber salad.  I chop up some cucumbers, add a dash of sesame oil and rice wine vinegar, toss and top with toasted sesame seeds.  It makes a great appetizer, side or light meal – and it’s very low in fat/calories.

The Kitchn featured the small but potent ingredient in a recent post.  I suggest taking a look at the recipes they’ve provided.

And, never forget, the smallest ingredients are often the most exciting (and delicious).

    That cucumber salad sounds awesome. Cucumbers are one of my favorite foods. I love making cucumber soup in the summer time.

    I often eat sesame bagels for breakfast at the office. Yesterday I got on a cleaning kick, turned my keyboard upside down and shook it out…and a sprinkle of sesame seeds fell onto my desk.
