It's time to step up your toasted sesame oil game.

If you’ve been using toasted sesame oil solely for finishing dishes, it’s time to try it on more than noodles and rice. Just as toast offers more flavor than bread, toasted sesame oil (made from roasted sesame seeds) packs a richer flavor than the regular stuff. Whip it into a Caesar-inspired dressing, then drizzle it over grilled chicken or fish. Toss sturdy russet or sweet potatoes in salt, pepper, and sesame oil for steak fries you’ll put on regular rotation. And for a protein-packed snack, make a creamy, garlicky cannellini bean dip, delicious with crunchy fresh veggies or rice crackers.
