Seaweed Sesame Seed Seasoning

Seaweed Sesame Seed Seasoning (Sally sold seashells at the seashore?) is my favorite touch to any dish. My freshman year in college, I was randomly placed in an all Asian hall (maybe the reason I ended up marrying Ken?) and therefore quickly learned many Asian customs and preferences (rice cookers, chopsticks, bowls for food, etc…). One of the best take-aways from that experience (definitely not my crazy roommate) was a Seaweed topping for rice. It simply is a small canister with seaweed and spices. Currently, my favorite variety of this seasoning is Seaweed Gomasio. And man oh man, is it good!

 

All of Eden Organic products are healthy, original, and delicious. ESPECIALLY, this seasoning!

Gomasio simply means condiment made with sesame….makes sense.

 

Seaweed.

Seaweed.

 

This spice is simply organic dry roasted sesame seed ground with sea salt and nutrient rich seaweed (kombu, dulse and nori). When you add this to your food, you don’t need to add any salt. WAM BAM FLAVA FLAVE.

 

Spoonfull of seaweed and sesame keeps the doctor away.

I recently made one of my favorite kale salads, and instead of using a lot of Tamari, I simply added a ton of Seaweed Gomasio. It has a nice crunch, tang, and saltiness. And if you ever are too lazy to cook, just add it to rice and you have a filling meal.

 

I don't even like rice, and this concoction is beyond delicious.

You can buy this awesomeness at any health food store, Amazon, or Whole Foods.

 

Is it bad if I just eat this spoonfull all by itself? No need for rice / kale / fish / meat, this tastes heavenly all by itself (but is a little messy).

I hope you have a great weekend! I am headed out early tomorrow morning to the Chicago Marathon….here I go! Send some positive vibes and energy my way — will need all the support I can get on the course on Sunday!

  1. Oh! I could seriously use this.. I do love rice but sometimes too bland. This would definitely help.
