Furikake – the popular Japanese seasoning for sprinkling on rice, soba, and other dishes – can come in many forms. More often than not, it’s a blend of seaweed and sesame seeds, sometimes salt & sugar, as well as bonito (fish) flakes for an extra savory flavor.
In our blend of furikake – Japanese Seaweed Seasoning – we wanted to create a more versatile blend that could be used to sprinkle on a wide variety of dishes, to enhance but not overpower the overall flavor. That’s why we left out fish flakes, and focused on mixing a good balance of sesame & seaweed. We begin with toasted white sesame seeds and roasted black sesame seeds to give the blend a warm, nutty crunch. Then we stir in the seaweed – finely chopped nori and wildcrafted dulse flakes. The nori and dulse both give the blend a healthy dose of vitamins, iodine, and minerals. Just sprinkling a little of the seasoning onto your food a few times a week will help contribute to a more balanced, nutritious diet.
