In traditional Chinese medicine, black sesame seeds have sweet and neutral properties, and are associated with the kidney and liver meridians.

 

They function to tonify yin jing and blood, moisten the intestines, and help build the spirit, or shen.

 

A good source of calcium, fiber, iron, protein, phosphorus, magnesium and more. Sesame seeds have a nutty, slightly sweet flavor and aroma that is enhanced by lightly heating.

 

Mix black sesame seeds with honey to create a sweet treat called Helva. In ancient times, women are believed to have eaten this mixture to prolong youth and beauty, whole Roman soldiers ate this mixture for strength and energy.

Warm Kale Salad With Roasted Sweet Potatoes

  • 3 medium/big sweet potatoes (peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes)
  • 3 big kale leaves (chopped)
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 4-5 Tbsp. olive oil or avocado oil (divided in two)
  • 2 Tbsp. sesame seeds
  • Pinch black pepper
  • Pink Himalayan salt (to taste)

Infused Olive Oil

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 garlic (minced)
  • Few parsley leaves (chopped)

Garnish

  • Fresh lemon juice (to taste)
  • Sesame seeds
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Arrange sweet potato cubes on baking sheet. Using pastry brush, paint sweet potato cubes with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Bake 45-60 minutes or until soft and golden brown.
  4. While sweet potato cubes bake, sauté garlic in olive oil. When garlic is lightly golden, add kale. Sauté a few minutes or until kale softens. Leave kale in pan and set aside.
  5. When sweet potatoes are ready, add them to pan with kale and mix.
  6. To make infused olive oil, mix ingredients in small container. Set aside. (Note: Flavors are better if mixture has time to sit.)
