Gomasio, also called Gomashio, is a traditional Japanese dry condiment and is the principal table condiment in the macrobiotic natural foods diet. It consists of dry roasted, crushed sesame seeds, seaweed and salt. You might like to use it in lieu of a pinch of salt to season your food, giving it a hearty, delicious taste. Gomasio has a powerful ant-acid, biochemical effect and it may help to strengthen the digestion and improve energy.

Gomasio is a table condiment that you can use every day in lieu of plain salt. It is especially delicious on avocado and toast, roasted vegetables and steamed greens.



1/4 cup black sesame seeds

1 teaspoon best quality salt

1/4 cup dulse flakes


1. Place seeds in a clean, dry, frying pan and toast on low heat, stirring often until they start to pop.

2. Allow to cool, then transfer to a mortar and pestle or clean coffee grinder.

3. Add the salt and dulse and pulse until crumble, not too fine, just enough so you can sprinkle.


Transfer to a small glass jar with fitted lid, or an empty salt grinder for everyday use.


Dulse is a reddish-purple sea lettuce available from Asian grocers and Japanese specialty stores.
