Gomashio Seasoning Is A Delicious Addition To a Meal

This gomashio seasoning is a Traditional Japanese Macrobiotic Seasoning that I learned to make in my macrobiotic days a long time ago. It is so tasty and a wonderful addition to a meal. The sesame seeds and seaweed are powerful superfoods.

Gomashio Seasoning Recipe

Ingredients:

1 cup raw unhulled Sesame Seeds
1 1/2 teaspoons Himalayan Salt
1 sheet of toasted nori seaweed, torn into pieces (optional)

Sesame seeds

Directions:

  1. Dry roast sesame seeds with salt in a frying pan over medium heat until golden brown.
  2. Let cool.
  3. Add sesame seeds, nori and salt to the grinder. (Traditionally a mortar and pestle is used to lightly grind toasted seeds with, I use a coffee-grinder or now my new magic bullet!)
  4. Gently grind to just crack the seeds leaving the mixture mealy, Do not grind to a powder. I know from experience that it is very easy when using an electrical appliance to do grind it too much.
  5. Store in a jar.
Sesame Seeds
Raw Sesame Seeds

I like to use Organic Sesame Seeds and buy lots at the same time at a good price. Also, so I can make double the recipe above and have lots for other cooking.
