Foodie Friday: Sesame Bread

Sesame bread: thick bread with an interior laced with scallions, and sesame seeds sprinkled on top

A common breakfast food or snack in Northern China, this bread requires no baking. That’s right–just fry it up in a pan! (The Chinese Islamic cuisine features an unleavened version, which results in a flatter bread.)

There’s an interesting contrast with the soft inside against the crisp outside. Sometimes the green onions can taste overpowering, but it’s a great way to sneak in vegetables and boost your vitamin K level. I also like the nutty flavor of the seeds, enhancing the taste of the plain outer layer. Sesame bread is served in pretty thick wedges, so it’s not a dish for the carb-wary. Here’s a video on how to make it:
