Gomashio is a condiment widely used by those who follow macrobiotic and vegan diet. It is incredibly good for you. Calcium- rich sesame seeds and magnesium- rich sea salt, great for bones, nervous system and digestion. Taste amazing on top of any cooked grains or vegetables.
It's been a regular condiment in my diet for the past seven years and I still love it!


18 tsp sesame seeds
1 tsp sea salt

You will need a mortal and pestle for this recipe.

Heat a non stick frying pan.
Add the salt and stir it often until the salt is really dry, about 2-3 minutes.
Pour the salt into a mortal / bashing dish and grind to a fine powder using the pestle.
Set a side.
Rinse the sesame seeds in a fine strainer.
Place the seeds in the same dry pan and toast over medium heat until the seeds puff up a little.
Add the sesame seeds to the mortal and grind until the seeds are 80 percent crushed.
Transfer the gomashio to a glass jar with lid and keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

note: Limit you consumption to about 2 teaspoon a day, otherwise you will get too much salt in your diet.
