Furikake (Homemade Japanese Rice Seasoning)

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 30min
Number of servings: 15

300g (10.6oz.) moist leftover Dashi ingredients
* 1 tbsp. Sake
* 3 tbsp. Mirin (sweet Sake)
* 3 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. toasted white sesame seeds

1. After making Dashi, let the Dashi ingredients cool down a bit until you can handle them. FYI: Dashi ingredients are Kombu (kelp), Katsuobushi (bonito flakes), and/or Niboshi (small dried sardines).
2. Cut the Dashi ingredients into small pieces. Each amount of Dashi ingredients can be as much as you have.
3. Put the Dashi ingredients and A in a frying pan. Cook on medium low heat, stirring constantly, until somewhat dry. *Mine took about 20 minutes.
4. Mix in toasted white sesame seeds to finish.

*Sprinkle on top of rice or mix in to make rice balls! You can make fried rice, too!
*You can freeze the Dashi ingredients. Then make Furikake when you are ready.
*You can store the Furikake in the fridge for a week, in the freezer for a month.
