Toasting Sesame seeds is not a must, but adds a pack of flavor along with its already nutritional boost. We purchase them in bulk and keep toasted seeds on hand for salads, stir fries, breads and steamed vegetables.
To toast them, cover the bottom of a frying pan with seeds (we use cast iron), turn on the burner and stir the seeds until golden brown. You can always roast on a cookie sheet also, however, we prefer the skillet so we can keep our eyes posted on the little seeds; they burn quickly!
Be sure to add sesame seeds to your healthy kitchen's pantry.
