• SEAWEED, THE HOT HEALTH FOOD

    Get creative with seaweed with these ideas!

    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

    Top ribbons of wakame with shichimi togarashi (a Japanese spice mixture, also known as seven-spice powder), lemon pepper, or a combination of your favourite spices and place on a roasting race in a 150C oven for 10 to 15 minutes. Enjoy on their own, with onion dip, or with fruity salsa.

     

    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.
