Furikake is a Japanese seasoning that is quite frankly delicious on just about everything. I bought a jar of ready-made furikake from Cheyennes last year and sprinkle it liberally when I’m looking for some heat and umami. It is especially delicious in Asian dishes, on eggs, rice, soup and sushi. It is also VERY delicious on avocado too.
I love avo toast as much as the next person and here I’ve made a simple open toasted bagel sandwich with furikake seasoning. I was happy to keep things simple with just the smashed Hass avocados which have a nutty flavour and creamy texture, sliced radishes, and mixed microgreens for this, but you can go to town with other bits to top the sandwich. Turning from green to dark purple as they ripen, knobbly skinned Hass avos are my favourite and to me the most delicious cultivar.
The furikake will keep in a stored jar for a few weeks. It’s important to toast the sesame seeds beforehand so that get that lovely toasted flavour. Make it as hot or mild as you like with more or less dried chilli flakes and togarashi. I used 5 grams of very thin dried nori sheets that are sold as a seaweed snack pack. h

An easy recipe for furikake seasoning

Pinch of dried chilli flakes

Put all the ingredients for the furikake in the bowl of a small food processor and blitz until well combined. You will need to tear the nori sheets up a bit. Store in a sealed jar. Sprinkle liberally on whatever you like. Its great on Asian dishes.
