Try adding a spoonful of sesame butter and honey to yoghurt to get a dessert popular in Greece. Sesame butter is also a key ingredient in tahini and humus, two of the probably most popular Middle Eastern specialties. Sesame seeds are a signifi cant source of calcium and as such particularly important for people avoiding dairy products. It is also an excellent source of manganese, copper and vitamin B1.
