Our Best Furikake Recipes
Mara's Furikake blend
Traditionally, Furikake is a Japanese seasoning which was introduced as a way of addressing the lack of calcium in the Japanese diet. As Mara's mission is to nourish body and soul, the ethos behind our Furikake blend follows similar suit.
Chilli flakes, black and white sesame seeds and Dulse seaweed flakes all add a delicious element to this fiery seasoning. As well as protein, our Dulse seaweed, hand harvested from the shores of Scotland and Ireland, contains potassium, magnesium and fibre.
Furikake pairs extremely well with rice dishes; however, there are an abundance of very tasty recipes enhanced by Furikake. Here are our favourites for you to enjoy.
