Does anyone know of any good recipes or recipe book about Raw Sea Vegtables?

I have several cookbooks. Each has a few recipes with Dulce and such. I do have a a recipe for Kombu "pasta", in The Raw food detox diet book. Noone have more than a handful though.
I would be interested in the same..
My trick for consuming sea vegetables is to chuck them in the blender as part of your green smoothie. Note that it is necessary to soak them for at least 5minutes beforehand, if you want to have them blend thoroughly, because certain seaweeds are very tough indeed and stay in chunks if put straight into the blender without soaking. Also note that a powerful blender is, as always, a great help in achieving a smooth consistency.
Provided you use onyl moderate quantities (which is what you should be doing, anyway), you should barely notice the taste of the seaweed at all.
You could also chuck them into soups or apply them, in granulated dried form, as a salt substitute on your meals. As I said, though, I prefer the smothie route so I don't have to overly-concern myself with taste or texture.

I use dulse, alaria and nori the most. The dulse is good because you don't have to soak it. I just snip off little pieces and sprinkle them on everything from salads to wraps. Same for alaria, but you have to soak it a few minutes first to soften it up. Nori I use as a wrapper. The other night I wrapped dehydrated falafel balls with lettuce, tomato & tahini dressing in a nori wrapper and it was delicious!

12 ounces kombu seaweed noodles
2 Organic Tomatoes, finely chopped
1 cup fresh basil, chopped
1 clove garlic, diced
1 tablespoon cold-pressed olive oil
1 tablespoon Celtic sea salt (or to taste)
Freshly ground black pepper to taste or other spice choice
Rinse the kombu noodles in warm water to bring them to room temperature or above. Toss all the ingredients together and serve.
I top with a some brocolli

I got them at Lori's Natural Food in Rochester NY..most bigger places will have them. I got the North Atlantic ones...cold water sea veggies are preferable !
