Some more sesame
I´m still on a toasted sesame seed roll (so to speak).
I used to buy my sesame pre-toasted, but now that I´ve discovered the joys of toasting my own, it´s crazy. Since some people have asked the baffling question, where do you use them ( where don´t you would be quicker), I´ll list a few favourites:
Number one, the best: white bread toast with butter, maldon salt, honey, and sesame seeds. A breakfast fit for the Queen of Sheba.
Number two: a yogourty sauce to use as a dip for crisps, or alongside a curry or tagine,salmon or anything else really: greek yogurt, grated and squeezed cucumber, salt, chopped mint, and sesame toasted along with some cumin seeds(this is a bastardized version of both raita and dukkah, but works a treat)
Number three: the ultimate sesame slurp-fest, courtesy of the Domestic Goddess and one of my top-five store cupboard dinners.
Number four: any other noodles
Number five: this Japanese rice , of which more some other time.
Number six: a salad to serve with spicy food : grated cucumber, grated carrot, splash olive oil, splash vinegar, salt, tiny dash of sugar and a good sprinkling of sesame seeds, black for effect.
Number seven: in biscuits, cheese muffins, or any bread you´re baking.
Number eight: with granola type cereal.
Number nine: with steamed spinach, or green beans, wether in a soy sauce-sesame oil dressing, or in a vinaigrette.
Number ten: not that you´d be so rag-mannered, but licking them off your finger is pretty darn good too.
