22 types of spices and condiments that every vegetarian should have on hand

Most seeds are rich in vitamins, healthy fats and other beneficial compounds and are therefore a favorite in vegetarian cooking. But with chia and flax seeds dominating vegetarian cooking, sesame seeds are often overlooked. Meanwhile, they have many health benefits, including lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, as well as being high in protein, B vitamins, and antioxidants (via Healthline).

Sesame seeds are very easy to incorporate into daily meals. For example, you can add a crunchy, nutty element to rice, pasta, sandwiches and curries by sprinkling some toasted seeds before serving. It also works well as a topping for cakes, breads, muffins, and other baked goods. Finally, you can make your own tahini — a creamy ground sesame paste that works wonders in sauces, dips, and baked goods.
