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) I like to avoid having it when I don’t feel it’s necessary for the dish. 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.
