I joined in the fun for the Simply Sesame Blogger Challenge and received three flavors of Simply Sesame to try: Vanilla with Almond Bits, Pistachio Morsels with a hint of Cardamom, and Pure Roasted Sesame.
First, I decided to try using it as I would tahini and made Charred Cauliflower for Thanksgiving.
Then, I whirled it into hummus; and we slathered it on toast. But, for the challenge, I wanted to try my hand at a Simply Sesame sweet and settled on creating a Sesame Panna Cotta. I made this recipe three times with each version of Simply Sesame I received. And, hands down, the family loved the batch made with Pure Roasted Sesame.
Ingredients makes eight 2-ounce servings
- 1 envelope gelatin
- 1/4 C cold water
- 1-3/4 C organic heavy cream
- 1/4 C organic whole milk
- 1/2 C organic granulated sugar
- 1 t pure vanilla extract
- 3 T Simply Sesame paste
- black sesame seeds for garnish
Dissolve the gelatin in cold water in a medium mixing bowl.
Place all the other ingredients in a medium saucepan and heat till it begins to steam. Do not let it boil. Whisk until smooth. Let cool for 10 minutes, then pour the warm cream into the gelatin and stir till completely dissolved.
Pour the mixture into your serving containers, leaving a little bit of space at the top - in case you want to top it with any sauce or whipped cream.
Let chill until set, but at least four hours. Serve cold.
To serve, garnish with black sesame seeds.
