Furikake is a Japanese dry seasoning blend meant for rice. There are many different kinds with a variety of ingredients. A sprinkle of furikake adds delicious flavour to plain rice but store bought versions often contain bonito (fish flakes) and MSG. While I don’t mind MSG (it occurs naturally in many foods), you don’t need it to make delicious vegan furikake! This vegan version is very simple, using only four ingredients. Use this recipe as a base and add other seasonings that you like to make it your own! Furikake stores very well as long as you keep it in a airtight container in a cool, dry location.
