… and other veggies from the sea!
If you have never used various seaweeds in cooking, you might imagine something stinky or slimy. Not usually.
Although we are not on a sodium-restrictive diet, we substitute granulated sea veggies (above) for salt in almost all of our cooking. It shakes out as a slightly coarse powder and tastes like salt, unless you use a lot of it – and then you’ll get a fishy flavor, but it really isn’t unpleasant.
And roasted nori is wonderful cut into thin strips and added to stews, salads, deviled eggs, sandwiches, or soups.
I especially enjoy roasted seaweed plain, right out of the package – but that might be a culinary quirk of mine …
Anyway, this is the seaweed that is used in making sushi, but you can keep things simple and roll plain rice in a sheet of the roasted nori for a mineral-rich side dish.
Have a good time inventing your own favorite dishes with delicious and healthy veggies from the sea!
