Sesame Seed

These white little seeds pack a mighty flavor punch. Used for centuries and most popular in Asian dishes. Toasting the seeds brings out their nuttiness and adds oomph when sprinkled on rice bowls, sushi and avocado toast. Not only that, each ¼-cup serving has as much calcium as a glass of milk! Sesame seeds can be ground into sesame butter (also called tahini) which gives hummus its tell-tale flavor.
