I like black sesame for its unique taste and health benefits. For quite a long while, I take pure black sesame paste from a local health shop, Healthy Station (健康站). Black sesame from Thailand is put into a cold pressed machine on spot. Customers have sesame paste the freshest way. The black colour may seem strange, but it is tasty and full of benefits:
- Rich in Essential Nutrients
- Lower Cholesterol Levels
- Reduce Blood Pressure
- Balance Hormone Levels
- Fight Cancer Cell Growth
- Boost Fat-Burning
- Enhance Nutrient Absorption
Below are the ingredients and steps (bilingual):
125g pure black sesame paste
52g rock sugar
Soak the rice for at least an hour.
Blend the sesame paste, rice and water in a blender.
Cook the mixture in a saucepan with medium high heat. Keep on stirring. At the beginning, the mixture is very runny. As it approaches to the boiling point, it starts to thicken. Turn to medium heat.
Add the rock sugar and stir to dissolve while cooking the sesame soup. Off the heat after the rock sugar has dissolved totally. Enjoy!
