This gomashio is so much better than what I have been buying in the grocery store, that I will just have to continue making it myself with this great recipe. I excitedly gathered my ingredients and placed them into my seldom used mortar, then energetically began the grinding process. Five minutes later, I wasn't quite as energetic and only a few of the seeds were pulverized. So...I just poured 1/4 of the mixture into my spice grinder and gave it a one second spin...voila...perfectly ground seeds. Thank God for modern appliances! As a reward for my efforts, I immediately used this toasted sesame salt as a light dip for some celery and radishes. Delicious. Sharon, thanks not only for this recipe but also for the encouragement to eat it for our health's sake!

Hi! Thanks for a great recipe. Just wanted to let you know that since you are using the food processor, be sure to only let it grind for a few seconds (not until fully ground) or you will damage the precious oils from the seasame and loose nutrients. :-)

Hiya, Just wanted to let you know that the correct name is actually "Gomashio" the "Goma" means seasame seeds and the "Shio" means salt in Japanese.I have lived in Japan and found this gomashio to be the yummiest thing ever! I put it on everything. :)

Absolutely fabulous!!! I just made some bread and sprinkled it with olive oil and the Gomasio and was in heaven! I will use this on everything! My sea salt never turned gray, but more of a light tan color. Thanks for a great seasoning that I will use ALWAYS! I've been trying to reduce my salt, and this is just the thing I've been looking for.

Finally, I found brown sesame seeds in an Asian grocery. Thankyou for this wonderful seasoning. So far, I've tried it on fried rice and on chicken. and just love it. It did take me more than 7 minutes to make, maybe because I didn't have the heat on high enough. I also decided to use my blender rather than my mortar and pestle. Made for Photo Tag.

Delicious on everything. It took me quite a while to get the salt to turn any other color than white. Maybe because I used Kosher salt.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this seasoning! Great vegan substitute for parmesan topping on pasta dishes. Like you, my husband loves the stuff and gets really psyched whenever I make it. I use a coffee grinder to get a fine texture. Highly recommended to top off a vegan lasagna!
