1. For the dressing, mix together the cumin, yogurt, tahini, lemon juice, and garlic in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

2. Trim the broccoli stem of the woody outer layer using a vegetable peeler. Cut about an inch off the bottom and discard. Cut the stem lengthwise into matchstick sized pieces. Cut the carrot into the same matchstick sized pieces.

3. Use a knife to cut the head of cabbage into shreds. Combine the broccoli, cabbage, and carrots in a bowl, pour dressing over the vegetables. Add the chopped parsley, salt and pepper to taste, and garnish with sesame seeds. If not serving immediately, keep the dressing and the vegetables separate, and dress just before serving.
