Sesame seeds are tiny, but this is one of the healthiest foods you can find. They have a delicious nutty taste and are used in a great variety of dishes all over the world. People discovered numerous health benefits of sesame seeds centuries ago. Either the seeds or oil made of them are mentioned in ancient Assyrian and Hindu legends. There are even some ancient Egyptian tomb paintings that feature bakers adding these seeds to bread dough.
During the ancient times, sesame seeds were believed to have some miraculous properties that made a person healthier and increased longevity. Many of those purported health benefits of old have been researched and proven valid by the scientists of today.

Health Benefits

The number of health benefits provided by sesame seeds is huge. The most important of them are:

  • Diabetes prevention.
    High content of magnesium and other important nutrients allows sesame to prevent diabetes and improve plasma glucose in those who suffer from this disease.
  • Normalizing blood pressure.
    Magnesium is one of the key elements that lower blood pressure.
  • Lowering the level of cholesterol.
    Sesame seeds contain phytosterols, a healthy plant-derived type of cholesterol that reduces the level of harmful cholesterol in your body and help protect your arteries and strengthen your cardiovascular system. The content of phytosterols in these seeds is the highest among all similar foods.
  • Improves digestion.
    These seeds are a very rich source of healthy fiber that safely cleanses your intestines.
  • Improves the condition of skin and hair.
    Due to high zinc and calcium content, the seeds promote skin health as well as strengthen hair and nails.
  • Relief for rheumatoid arthritis pain.
    High content of copper allows the seeds to reduce swelling and pain caused by rheumatoid arthritis. This particular nutrient also helps lysyl oxidase (an enzyme which is essential for linking elastin and collagen) to stay active, thereby reducing the risk of developing arthritis and other conditions that affect joints.
  • Osteoporosis prevention.
    Sesame seeds contain a great deal of highly absorbent calcium and zinc. These elements are essential for bone health and reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis in elderly people.
  • Cancer prevention.
    Numerous nutrients contained in sesame seeds support various systems of your body and decrease the risk of developing some cancers, especially bone and lung cancer.
  • Liver protection.
    Sesamin, a unique nutrient contained by sesame seeds, protects your liver from harmful effects of oxidation.

Suggested Uses

Sprinkle the seeds on biscuits, add them to dough when baking bread or buns, add some to salads or mix with almonds and peanuts to make sugary Indian sweets.

Easy Vegan Falafel

Easy Vegan Falafel


  • 1 15-ounce (425 g) can chickpeas, rinsed, drained and patted dry
  • 1/3 cup (15 g) chopped fresh parsley (or sub cilantro)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 shallots, minced (~ 3/4 cup, 65 g | or sub white onion)
  • 2 Tbsp (17 g) raw sesame seeds (or sub finely chopped nuts, such as pecans)
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin, plus more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp each sea salt and black pepper, plus more to taste
  • OPTIONAL: Healthy pinch each cardamom and coriander
  • 3-4 Tbsp (24-31 g) all purpose flour (or sub oat flour or gluten free blend with varied results)
  • 3-4 Tbsp (45 – 60 ml) grape seed oil for cooking (or sub any neutral oil with a high smoke point)


  1. Add chickpeas, parsley, shallot, garlic, sesame seeds, cumin, salt, pepper (and coriander and cardamom if using) to a food processor or blender and mix/pulse to combine, scraping down sides as needed until thoroughly combined. You’re looking for a crumbly dough, not a paste (see photo).
  2. Add flour 1 Tbsp at a time and pulse/mix to combine until no longer wet and you can mold the dough into a ball without it sticking to your hands – I used 4 Tbsp.
  3. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. I added a bit more salt, pepper, and a dash of cardamom and coriander. You want the flavor to be pretty bold, so don’t be shy.
  4. Transfer to a mixing bowl, cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours to firm up. If you’re in a hurry you can skip this step but they will be a little more fragile when cooking.
  5. Once chilled, scoop out rounded Tablespoon amounts (~30 g in weight ) and gently form into 11-12 small discs.
  6. OPTIONAL: Sprinkle on panko bread crumbs and gently press to adhere – flip and repeat. This will produce a crispier crust but is optional.
  7. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add enough oil to generously coat the pan – about 2 Tbsp. Swirl to coat.
  8. Once the oil is hot, add only as many falafel as will fit very comfortably in the pan at a time – about 5.
  9. Cook for a total of 4-5 minutes, flipping when the underside is deep golden brown. Repeat until all falafel are browned – the deeper golden brown they are, the crispier they’ll be. They will also firm up more once slightly cooled.
  10. Serve warm with garlic-dill sauce or hummus, inside a pita with desired toppings or atop a bed of greens.
  11. Best when fresh, though leftovers will keep in the refrigerator covered for several days. Freeze after that to keep fresh for up to 1 month.

  1. 5 out of 5

    I pan-toast these a cup at a time on med.-low heat, being careful to stir and not let them get too dark/burn, cool, store in sealed container, and then I put in take a teaspoon at a time as a snack. I place the seeds between my upper and lower lips and chew a couple at a time.
