Gomashio is such a wonderful garnish to your meals. If you think of it like parsley, scattering it on top of your soups, vegetables and grains. It not only adds interest to your food to look at but the nuttiness of the toasted sesame seeds & the sea salt actually draws out the flavours of your food.
