So, what is les sésame?

Les sésames, also known as sesame seeds, are a tiny yet mighty ingredient that have been used for centuries in many cuisines around the world. They come from the flowering sesame plant, which produces pods that contain the small, oval-shaped seeds. These seeds have a nutty and slightly sweet flavor, and they are often used as a garnish for bread, sushi, salads, and other dishes. Not only do les sésames add flavor and texture to food, but they also pack a nutritional punch, being a good source of protein, healthy fats, fiber, and minerals such as calcium, iron, and magnesium. Additionally, they are believed to have several health benefits, including improving heart health, reducing inflammation, and supporting bone health.
