This week’s Dinner in 25 Minutes dish, Sesame-Coated Chicken, and special blog-only recipe, Quince Honey Challah Knots, reaffirmed what some of us already knew: That sesame seeds are great on food other than bagels.

If you’re looking for more ways to use up the neglected jars of those tiny, nutty kernels in your pantry, have a look at these ideas from our Recipe Finder:

Coconut-Almond Granola, which is great on its own for breakfast or worked into cookies.


Open Sesame Meltaways (Michael Temchine for The Washington Post)

Seared Tuna With Sesame Seed Crust, a quick-cooking main course served over the mesclun greens now showing up at area farmers markets.

Udon Noodles With Baby Bok Choy, with an extra dose of sesame in its oil and tahini forms.
