What’s inspiring me today.
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).
