Pasteli is a Greek traditional type of nougat based on sesame and honey, known and loved since ancient times. The basic recipe for pasteli with honey indicates that the honey should be boiled and then mixed carefully with sesame seeds to tie in well together. After the mixture is formed, it's left to cool down and then cut into pieces. Pasteli is ideally restorative and nutritious, as it contains vitamin E, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and iron. Pastelis are distinguished between soft-boiled and crispy (if sesame seeds are dominant). Today, there can be found several variations with nuts, dried fruit, etc.
