We have been selling edible seaweeds in our herb store for about 3 years now. Their popularity has been increasing each year as more and more are learning about the vast nutrients available in seaweed. It is important you buy seaweed from a reputable store as it must be harvested, dried, and cleaned properly. Once this is done the result is a nutrient dense superweed!
Last week we decided to try some seaweed soup. We opted for a bowl of Korean style seaweed. While I am not the greatest fan of eating seaweed I will say that on some occasions after a good size helping of kelp or Bladder wrack I feel a rush of energy and vigor. Since we have already tried Kelp and Bladder wrack in soups and other dishes we opted to try our organic Dulse flakes for the soup. We found a base recipe online and began.
Here is what we used and it seemed to work well!
1 oz Organic Dulse Flakes
6 cups Organic Chicken Broth
1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder
1/2 teaspoon French Onion Base Powder
1 teaspoon Minced Garlic
2 teaspoons Sesame Oil
1 tablespoon Soy Sauce
Sea Salt to taste
Soak the Dulse in water for two hours or until soft. Drain and rinse really well, as dried seaweed can come with a lot of dirt, just like spinach does. Then pour all ingredients into pot, bring to boil and then simmer for 5-7 Min's. We had this with a side of squash and zucchini as well as some wild brown rice. I am now a believer! It really tasted okay and may become a regular recipe amongst all Florida Herb House followers! Have a great day!!
