Gomashio (gomasio) is a basic seasoning combining sesame seeds and sea salt that's typically used as a condiment for sprinkling over rice, soups, vegetables and salads. Below I use a mixture of black and white sesame seeds, but if you've only one type, it's fine to use them. (See the bottom of the page for links to more of my recipes)
Note: Whilst in the recipe below I use a spice grinder, for a touch of authenticity, you could also use a pestle and mortar.
What You'll Need: (makes about 4 tablespoons)
3 tbsp white sesame seeds
3 tbsp black sesame seeds
1 tbsp coarse sea salt
tbsp = tablespoon
Store in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight. Use within 2 months.
