Goma (sesame seeds) find their way into many Japanese dishes, adding a subtle nutty, buttery flavor. They’re so integral in Japanese cuisine that Japan has become the largest importer of sesame seeds in the world!

This Gomaae Seasoning allows you to easily make a popular Japanese side dish consisting of blanched greens in a sesame dressing (suggested use below), which is full of sweet, salty and umami flavor given the carefully selected additional seasonings.

Yamashiroya was established by its founding mother, Sada Sanada, in 1904, but was completely destroyed in World War II. Driven by the desire to continue the family business, Yamashiroya was reestablished in 1946 and celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2004.

Yamashiroya's produce is grown by hand and relies on the wisdom and experience of their farmers who cultivate the rich soil, resulting in high-quality crops. After being run by four generations of women, the company is now in its fifth generation and is run by the family’s young son

Suggested use: Add 3 Tbsp (about 20g) to about 100g of boiled and squeezed greens (such as spinach, broccoli, mustard spinach, green beans, etc.) and mix. Can also be mixed with mayonnaise to create a dressing for vegetables.
