Not only are sesame seeds an excellent source of calcium, copper and a very good source of manganese, but they are also a good source of magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc, molybdenum, selenium, and dietary fibre.
Not one, but two of my pantry staples had run out? Inconceivable. So I improvised. And what was I left with at the end? A half a can of soft and mushy unused lentils in the fridge, that I gave new life to via this humble yet delicious take on hummus. With an extra kick of good fat and protein thanks to the addition of hemp hearts!
