Easy seaweed recipes14 October 2015
Here’s a blogpost on cooking with seaweeds with some easy seaweed recipes that I wrote for Serene Social, a wonderful website run by a friend of mine that hosts wellness events in London and New York. Check them out HERE.
Firstly, choose your seaweed carefully. Not all seaweeds are created equal and some are far more delicious and easy to cook than others – like Dulse, Sea Spaghetti and Wakame.
Secondly always go for a reputable brand, ideally organically certified.
Thirdly, experiment! Seaweeds all have wonderful savoury flavour-enhancing properties so taste good with pretty much everything (savoury at least, although toasted Dulse also tastes excellent with chocolate).
Dulse crisps – an easy win
Great for a dinner party nibble and for crunching over eggs.
– Heat up a dry frying pan till it’s very hot. Lay Dulse leaves in the pan and keep a careful eye on them – they will begin to turn green after 90 seconds or so, at this point take them out of the pan. Let them cool then crunch away!
Sea Spaghetti – nutrients you hardly notice
As easy and comforting as a duvet day, Sea Spaghetti is your new best friend in the kitchen. Boil in a pan for 15 minutes and add to any pasta dish either alongside of as well as traditional or spelt pasta. Try our Land & Sea Spaghetti with Anchovy, Lemon and Chilli for a dish that will leave your family licking their plates!
Wakame – the leaf with more
This leaf tastes like spinach and has ten times more calcium than milk. Just put in warm water and allow to hydrate for a few minutes, then drain and throw into a salad or smoothie with a vinaigrette. Delicious with carrots, peppers and nuts, experiment with our Crunchy Wakame Salad on our website HERE.
