Author Notes: Gomasio is a fabulous condiment that adds great flavor to dishes without a lot of salt.denise | {wholly rooted}

Makes: 1/2 pint

  • 1/4 cup black sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup white sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon dulse flakes
  • 1 tablespoon hulled hemp seeds
  • 1 teaspoon dried minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon dried holy basil/tulsi (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon good sea salt
  1. Start by toasting your sesame seeds in a dry pan on med-high. This only takes a short time - you are not cooking the seeds, just heating them to release their oils and aroma and toast lightly. Stir stir stir and remove from the heat and pour into a bowl before they start getting too dark.
  2. Combine all of your ingredients and gently grind together. I find a large mortar and pestle works best. You can pulse *just a few times* in your food processor, but do not over do!! You don't want to make sesame paste. You don't want a powder. You want just all of the ingredients integrated and infused with each other so they don't separate. I usually take 3-5 minutes with a mortar and pestle to gently grind it all together.
  3. Store in an air tight container - it fits perfectly in a 1/2 pint jelly jar, or put in a shaker. Sprinkle over eggs, steamed veggies, chicken, stew, soup (miso!), dips, salads, you name it. IT IS DELICIOUS!
