Although small, sesame seeds are packed with nutrients such as healthy fats, protein, calcium, antioxidants and dietary fiber. The primary fats in the seeds are monounsaturated fatty acids called oleic acid. Oleic acid has been shown to lower LDL ("bad") cholesterol and increase the HDL ("good") cholesterol.

 

Try using in tahini. One of the main ingredients of hummus, is made from roasted sesame seeds and vegetable oil ground into a thin paste. You can also make a light salad dressing out of tahini. Sesame seeds can also be roasted, crushed and then sprinkled over salads. This will give you more variety and flavor than your typical salad. Add raw sesame seeds to any side dish to add crunch and flavor. For instance, you can add to vegetable or bean dishes.
