Gomasio

Gomasio is a is tasty toasted seasoning that can be used on almost any food. The natural flavors add flavorful oil, and contains 20 percent protein, Vitamins A&E and most B vitamins. It is very high in zinc and calcium. Once the seed is opened keep refrigerated.

½ cup raw sesame seeds
1/8 tsp sea salt.

After washing seeds, place in dry fry pan on medium high heat and roast until seeds pop and become brown. Remove from heat quickly (will easily burn) Add sea salt. Place in a surabachi bowl or a grinder and grind until at least ½ of the seeds have been opened. Store in close container in the refrigerator.

1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 cups butternut squash
handful of chives
sea salt to taste

Option 2:

AU NATURELLE! This soup can also be enjoyed without any seasonings! The natural flavor of the squash may surprise you. When I am feeling more ambitious, I will soak and roast the squash seeds with a little tamari (natural fermented soy sauce). After roasting, I will grind the seeds and use them as a condiment in the soup. Delicious!!
