Mala Market Sesame Paste $17.95

Mala Market stone-grinds its seeds the traditional way, with their hulls intact, for a smooth and full-bodied texture.

Similar to natural peanut butter, the sesame paste will have some separation but is smooth—and fresh—enough that a quick stir is enough to reincorporate the oils and solids. In Chinese cuisine, white sesame paste is generally used for savory recipes, especially as a base ingredient for sauces in dan dan noodles or cold sesame noodles.

Use this sesame paste for cold noodle dishes, in dipping sauces, and in dressings. The toasted flavor is also wonderful in desserts-- try substituting for tahini or peanut butter as a nuttier and richer companion to chocolate.
