View Full Version : Talk to me about sea vegetables

I bought a large bag of dulse at the HFS recently as part of my prepping to be raw, but what are some other sea vegetables that I should try and what do I do with them? Right now I had planned on sprinkling the dulse on my salad or maybe adding it to spreads and dips.

Nori used as wraps is excellent.
Kelp powder/flakes are also good.
Experiment around. Have fun w/it!

Also check out RFT's Recipe threads, filled with lots of ideas. I asked about the nori sheets there and got some great ideas!

Hi KPainter -
I like wakame, too. It is great with pates rolled up in collard or lettuce leaves.

i usually throw about 1 tbsp of dulse flakes into my green smoothies

Nori taste good in Asian style salads and mixed with mustard greens or spinach that has been frozen and thawed to get that good withered "cooked" effect.

have a page that describes their products and what they're like and how to use. Some of their stuff is raw, as well. I just put in my first order. I know I like nori, because I've eaten lots of vegi rolls, but I'm not sure about the other things, it's going to be interesting as I learn how to use them and figure out what I like.

I like using dulse or kelp granules or powder in salads, on tomato slices, in soups. If you get the whole leaf seaweeds, you can eat it alone as a snack. Though some are harder to chew. You can choose to soak those. Nori rolls, of course, are really great too. You can pretty much use seaweed wherever you normally would use salt or other seasoning as long as you enjoy the flavor.

A few years ago, blood tests showed that my thyroid and pituitary glands were not functioning properly. My doctor prescribed thyroid extract, but I did not take it. Since I don't use salt or processed foods, I figured I had an iodine deficiency. I started using dulse in moderation and it solved the problem.

they really are a superfood, and we are so sufficient. there are great ideas here, and i just wanted to add that you can buy raw sea vegetable powder (schinoussa is the one i use) and add it to your smoothies/juice any day you are in a hurry - it saved me while i was travelling. really made a huge difference in my overall feeling of well being.

You should try:
Algae (spirulina, chlorella) **** I am a huge fan!*****
anything else from the www.rawfromthefarm.com sea veggie page.
