  • What is your favorite way to prepare sea vegetables?

    Has anyone here tried sea vegetables? Made sea weed salad? Fixed a smoothie with sea greens in it? I would like to try some sea vegetables but don't know quite where to start. I've started to see them at the local food co-op, and we have a couple of Asian groceries close by. I'm looking for suggestions.

    I open the dried packet and add it to water. After draining, I season it with sesame oil and a little sweetener.

      I buy the Sea Tangle brand kelp noodles. You can use them cold straight out of the package to make a seaweed salad or heat them up with any number of different sauces as a pasta sub. Also great in asian style soups.

        This, except for the sweetener. Really, sweetener in vegetables?? A little bit of tamari is good too

          I eat Nori sheets right out of the package like potato chips or I cut them in to strips and add to soup or I chop the sheets up finely and sprinkle over stir-fried vegetables.

            It's the traditional way of eating seaweed salad.

              That, and I just crush up nori for everything. My chilli mix for nachos has nori wrap in it, my omelettes have nori wraps in them, my white rice, veggies and salmon has nori wraps in them. Freaking nori wraps, baby.

                i use nori sheets as wraps too. for scrambled eggs, salmon mashed with avocado, smoked oysters mashed with cream cheese and mustard, sardines with butter and hot sauce.

                i put hijiki or wakame bits in bone broth with eggs most days.

                put kombu sheets in my bone broth too.
                As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

                  Thanks for all the suggestions -- looks like a good place to start will be Nori -- and go from there. I've heard about sea tangle kelp noodles, but can't find them around here. If I want to try them, looks like I'll have to order online. Kombu in the bone broth sounds interesting too. My son bought some Kombu, and its been sitting around here and I haven't known what to do with it.

                    Add kombu to any soup. It will add all kinds of good nutrients without effecting the taste.

                    I love some cucumber and seaweed salad. And, yes, it does normally require just a touch of sweetener but you can leave it out.

                      I eat nori every day! I just wrap all my food up in it!! I love to eat with my hands so nori works perfectly.

                        Nori paper is manufactured from seaweed, but I don't consider anything less than whole dried, fresh, or frozen seaweed like wakame, etc, to be a "sea vegetable".

                          Regular nori is simply dried seaweed you know...

                            It is not a vegetable in the sense that you can cook with it, put it in soups or stews. I consider it processed. I eat it. But it's not like the seaweed I could pick up off the beach.

                              i can't pull butter directly out of a cow, but i don't consider that a processed food either.
