Techniques used in this recipe:

- chop (I): to cut into pieces of roughly the same size.
- julienne: vegetables, potatoes, or other items cut into strips; 1/8-inch square x 1 to 2 inches is standard. Fine julienne is 1/16-inch square.
- sesame seed
Also known as “benne”, is the seed of a sturdy annual which attains a height of approximately 2 feet. Sesame does not readily lend itself to any of the categories in the family of spices. It lacks the aromatic qualities of its cousins and its claim to distinction is in its sweet, "nutty" flavor.
Aside from its common uses in appetizers, breads, meats, seafood, and vegetables, this easily cultivated seed yields a fine cooking oil which has been, and continues to be, an important diet item in many parts of the world. Tahini, a primary component of hummus, is made from toasted sesame seeds and oil ground together.
