Potato with sesame and a Chardonnay

Sesame seeds are a valuable source of nutrients. There are two types of sesame seeds: black and white. Their nutritional properties are very similar, even if the white sesame seeds are more easily available. The intake of sesame seeds is beneficial for bones, improves liver functions, stimulates circulation and helps to improve digestion. Beyond the benefits, the sesame seeds enrich a simple dish like this, with their scent and their crunchiness.

  • 3 tablespoons white sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • white pepper, to taste
  • Extra virgin oil, to taste
