Looking for recipes featuring sesame seeds

So my significant other went grocery shopping. Sunflower seeds was on the list but he came back with 2 pounds of sesame seeds instead 🙃 Besides tahini, I was wondering if anyone had any really good recipes featuring sesame seeds.

    Generally I would thing that in a recipe with sunflower seed, you could substitute sesame seeds. Will be interested in what others come up with in the line of recipes.

    Salads, chili, lasagna, sloppy joes, soups. These seeds are high in calcium so they can be added to almost every recipe and also into smoothies.

    I live in Japan, and a common way to eat sesame seeds here is to lightly sautee any green you like in a pan, adding a little soy sauce. When it is cooked, add sesame seeds on top.

    You can add sesame seeds to a smoothie for a little extra protein. You can grind them to a powder and use them in baking.
