The ideas so far have been really good. I have a couple more to add.

Nori can be placed *in* wraps and sandwiches. This one restaurant in town (now closed) made a "mango sushi" wrap. He put the wrap down, a sheet of nori, a sauce, tofu, mango. It's been a while but the wrap hides the nori pretty well.

Kanteen is a "jello" dish made with agar. I see it a lot in my macro cookbooks. You use juice (fruit, veggie) that you like and can add fruit/veggie bits. It sets and makes a jello-like treat.

I've seen seaweeds as salads before (rehydrate and season). I've never made these but it could be a place to look for recipes. Maybe invent a bean-seaweed salad with mushrooms and a soy/ginger/garlic kind of dressing.

There are also some sea veggies and algae (like spirulina) that are more "powdery" that hide well in smoothies. If you like green smoothies they hide better in those.

I am soooo glad this topic came up.

I want to eat more sea vegetables but I'm having difficulty with figuring out how to prepare it in ways I like.

I am fine with nori - use it in miso and raw vegan sushi. Love kelp granules, add it to my salad. On very rare occasion I use agar agar to thicken my home-made vegan chocolate pudding.

But I have some dulse and wakame and can NOT for the life of me figure out how to make it palatable.

I would LOVE to have sea vegetables in my diet once, if not several times, a week.

Any help would be appreciated!

They generally smell like fish to me so I don't like them. Possibly a skilled cook could hide them in something and I might eat it. Additionally, none are produced locally and I do prefer to eat both fresh and low kilometres.
Guess I'm not your go to man on sea veg :-(

I love miso soup! But the sodium scares me so I have a cup every other day with some wakame. As for the nori, I use them as burrito wraps. Add some to a pot of beans too, they sort of blend in and its just delish!

I do. I use nori as a wrap for an eggroll sort of thing and I put wakimi in my spring rolls, my rice, on my salads. I eat a lot of miso and put sea veggies in there.

One caution is to make sure your sea veggie source is mercury-free. I buy from Rising Tides and love their stuff.

I will admit that the only thing I know about sea vegetables is that they are nutritious, but I do not eat them myself because I have no idea how to prepare them. If you can shed any light on the topic, we would love to hear back from you.

Hi Everyone! I am just curious if anyone here consumes sea vegetables regularly. Currently, I try to get them in my diet 3 times a week. Usually nori, wakame, or kombu. Does anyone else consume them or have any yummy recipes including them? If not, they are crazy nutritious and worth looking into.
