Fragrant Gomasio

Fragrant Gomasio

Have you heard of gomasio? This sesame salt is so aromatic and tasty and adds the certain something to simple dishes, such as steamed veggies. I always have gomasio at hand and sprinkle it over almost every dish.

You only need two ingredients for gomasio: sesame seeds and salt. You toast both and then pestle them in a mortar. Sesame is very good for your body, because it contains a lot of calcium and all eight essential amino acids.

In Japan gomasio is traditionally made with black sesame, but I use white sesame most of the time, because it easier to get here. If you’d like to try it with black sesame check out your Asian supermarket. I bought my black sesame seeds there.

Have fun making your own gomasio.

    Ja ja ja, da gebe ich dir total recht, Gomasio ist genial und sooo einfach, möchte es auch nicht mehr missen.
    Verwende es bestimmt schon 10 Jahre und es wird mir nie zuviel.
