There’s a sea change happening in the vegetable world. Rich flavours plus vitamins, minerals, and muscle-building protein have made seaweed a hot health food. Chefs are in love, and they’re using the green in clever ways that go beyond the sushi roll. Here’s how you can use them!
1. Crisp up spicy chip
2. Make sea tacos
Add any herbs, cucumber, canned tuna, and a citrus vinaigrette to a bowl of rice, then fold up squares of seasoned nori, and use them as mini taco shells.
3. Turn them into salad croutons
Rehydrate hijiki by soaking it in water for 30 minutes, then add it to a quinoa salad for extra crunch. Mix in a sesame dressing to tie the flavours together.
