This week I sprouted sesame.“Open sesame“ is a well-known magic spell and opens the door. Sesame is one of the oldest oil plants and is grown for over 5500 years in India. Sesame oil doesn’t get rancid and is also known as a cosmetic agent for hair and skin. The Asian cuisine uses sesame as a spice and oil. The Greeks and the Romans loved biscuits made of sesame. It was a honey based lollipop. They used it also in bread dough, so do I. Very important for vegans to know:sesame is a very good source of calcium: 100 g sesame contains 1025 mg calcium, you have to drink two litres of milk to get the same amount! If you sprout sesame you have to keep in mind the short germination . After two days they will lose their soft nutty flavour. Bananas are known for their potassium and together with sesame sprouts I got
Sesame coated banana
A kind of healthy muesli bar or power bar or just a delicious dessert. The whole family liked it.
You need for 4 servings.
4 small bananas
1 1/2 cups sprouted sesame
2 tbsp. honey
1 pinch of ginger, freshly ground
Liquidize the honey with table water and season with ginger. Wet the bananas with honey water and roll in the sesame sprouts. To enhance the taste of sesame serve with tahini.

I love the way I am being forced to learn a tiny bit of German so I can remember which word to choose for your comments! Americans are so helpless when it comes to other languages, and it’s nice that the rest of the world doesn’t pick on us too much (or do they and we just don’t know it?) I must learn what „sichern“ and „Abbrechen“ mean!! Anyway this does sound like a wonderfully healthy dessert. I don’t think I’ve ever had sprouted sesame, but I love sesame in any form so I’m pretty sure I’d love it.
My comment appeared. Just as a mental memory trick I am going to pretent that „sichern“ means „say it“. You will have to tell me if I am close.
Yum thank you for this recipe. I like sprouted sesame and there aren’t never enough recipe using it.
I have two bananas left in the kitchen–maybe I’ll give this recipe a try tomorrow!
