Nutrition Nugget

Super Seed Sauce

Usually sesame seeds just hide out in our bread, but when you grind a bunch of them together, you get tahini: a rich, creamy, and delicious sauce that’s actually healthy! They have plenty of micronutrients and, like other whole plant fats, can help the absorption of vitamins and phytonutrients from greens and other foods. Their lignans are anti-cancer, and sesame/tahini also has demonstrated anti-inflammatory abilities, as well as lowering cholesterol. Try it with salads, grain bowls, toast, or anywhere a satisfying spread is needed.
