Gomashio

While at a group lunch I learned about Gomashio, a Japanese seasoning with broad applications. I had it sprinkled on lightly cooked greens. Then I wanted to put it on everything! So I went home and made some for our kitchen. It's ingredients are sesame seeds (toasted in a cast iron skillet) mixed with salt at a ratio of about 10:1. I used black salt to give it a little color. It's delicious!

Try "furikake," which is like gomashio but has nori as well as other things like bonito flakes, wasabi, or green tea. Yum

Gomashio makes me think of my parents. They always have a batch in the house, and have ever since I was a kid! :)
