My favorite seed is probably the sesame seed. This tasty little seed is full of nutrients like calcium, iron, proteins and healthy fats, and it tastes divine. I regularly make raw tahini (sesame paste), that I keep in the fridge and use in smoothies, puddings, wraps, and as a spread on raw food bread. It lasts for 3-4 days, and it’s super easy to make.
1 cup raw sesame seeds (un-toasted)
2 cups water, to soak
Soak the sesame seeds for 4 hours.
Drain and rinse them under running water and put them in the fridge to sprout for 2-4 hours.
Take the seeds and mix them in a high-speed blender like the vitamix, until it turns into a smooth paste. You can store the tahini in a sealed glass jar for 3-4 days.
