So, what is creme de sésame?

Creme de sésame, also known as sesame paste, is a creamy and savory ingredient made from finely ground toasted sesame seeds. Originating from Middle Eastern cuisine, this versatile paste adds a rich nutty flavor to dishes like hummus, baba ganoush, and sauces. It's also a common ingredient in Asian cuisine, used as a dipping sauce for meat or vegetables. Creme de sésame is a great source of plant-based protein, healthy fats, and essential vitamins and minerals like calcium and iron. Its thick and smooth texture makes it an excellent binding agent for vegan recipes and a flavorful alternative to traditional spreads like peanut butter.
