08-22-2010, 01:48 PM
hi, i bought a package of raw seaweed, since it looked so tempting and i saw someone at a raw food fair who had made algae for visitors to test ...
unfortunately i haven't found any raw food recipes for that though ... :-(( has anyone prepared a dish with it yet?
all help appreciated!
take good care and have an awesome day!
Do you know what kind of seaweed it is? I have a great recipe that uses arame, which looks like little thin long sticks. *‹*

If it's dulse you can make raw mock tuna with it:
Raw Tuna Salad Recipe
2 cups sunflower seeds (soaked for at least two hours)
1 tablespoon (or a bit more) dulse (seaweed) (make sure to wet your dulse first with the lemon juice or apple cider vinegar)
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1. Soak the nuts. Rinse them well and discard all water.
2. Process all of the paste ingredients in a food processor on high until the mixture resembles a very smooth paste. You should not see any nut bits at all. You may need to stop and start and get in there with a spatula.
3. Eat right away or refrigerate to eat later. I prefer to keep the pate separate and I donít add any chunks (onions, celery, etc) until Iím ready to eat.
4. When youíre ready to eat, serve your portion in a bowl. Then add some chopped onions, parsley, raw pickles or apples to suit your taste.
5. Enjoy on crackers, on top of a salad, in a nori roll, or moreÖ

hi ... thanx for the recipe ... i'll try that ...
the algae i bought is called wakame (at least that is what the label states). i think it is usually used in asian soups. very thin slices.
since i made a cheese sauce yesterday anyway, i tried putting in some of the algae and it tasted just great ... the algae soaked up the creamy sauce and had a wonderful taste ... :-)))
but i'm still eager to know what else one could do with it.
thanx in advance and have a wonderful day

Lol, rawveggie that is exactly what I did first with my wakame (which was also my first sea veggie). Although I hated the sea taste, so I had to absolutely drown it in cheese.
If you're not too keen on it don't give up on other sea vegetables, it's one of the more potent varieties.

oh its not a bad taste at all ... i do like it in a way, even though it needs getting used to at first, i admit.
so far i've looked for other sea weeds, but to no avail ... :-(
i don't know if they're not popular in germany ...
but i'm still searching recipes for algaes ...
any more recipes??
thanx in advance
