A Sprinkle of Furikake

Furikake

Furikake is a common household item in Japan. Many homecooks even them keep furikake in their spice cabinets at home and use it to flavor a variety of different foods. In the U.S., you might find furikake at an Asian market or festival. But today we’ll teach you how to make it yourself!

*Grown-up Note: If you only have raw sesame seeds at home, help your kids toast them in a skillet on low heat before preparing the rest of this recipe. Advise them to stir the seeds every minute or so until they become fragrant and lightly toasted. This should take about 7-8 minutes.
