This Month’s Ingredient

The Essential Ingredient Seaweed

Bursting with umami, seaweed is protein rich and packed full of nutrients – it’s no wonder that it has been used all over the world for thousands of years, most notably as a prominent part of Asian diets. There is immense diversity in flavour and nutritional properties of seaweed, and they come in a multitude of colours, textures, shapes and sizes.

Explore the culinary uses of this intriguing and nutrient dense food with The Essential Ingredient’s range of seaweeds. Once soaked, seaweed can be added to salads, soups, or mixed with cooked pasta. Seaweed can also be used to wrap rice or mixed with butter to create a tasty seaweed butter that’s delicious on bread and sandwiches.
