Recipe Friday: Gomasio

sesame seedsGomasio is basically a condiment made of sesame seeds and salt. And it just makes everything taste better. It’s part of a macrobiotic (or superhero) diet because it’s better than salt alone as it adds some healthful nutrients.

Nutrition and You explains sesame seeds:

Its oil seeds are sources for some phyto-nutrients such as omega-6 fatty acids, flavonoid phenolic anti-oxidants, vitamins and dietary fiber with potent anti-cancer as well as health promoting properties.

You can buy gomasio (gə-mosh-ee-o) at the store, but why not make it yourself? It’s super cheap and easy to make. We always have a jar of fresh gomasio on our table to top our dinners.

(I have a small mortar and pestle, so this is 1/2 the normal recipe.)

  • 3 TBSP sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tsp salt

1. Toast the salt in a dry skillet. Transfer toasted salt to a suribachi or mortar and pestle and grind into a fine powder.

2. Toast the sesame seeds in the same dry skillet until they’re a nice toasty color. Transfer the seeds to the suribachi or mortar and pestle and grind together with the salt.

Store it in a jar. It lasts about 1-2 weeks. Put it on everything besides sweets.
Try it. You’ll love it!
