1/1 Photo of Sesame Seaweed
This delicious recipe came from a class I took at my local food co-op on sea vegetables by Nishanga Bliss. It is super easy to make and is wonderful for people who have not done a lot of cooking with or eating of seaweed, like me. I served it as a side to veggie burgers and ate leftovers cold in my lunch the next day. You will probably be able to find the seaweed in natural food or Asian stores. Variations: use almond or peanut butter instead of tahini, add garlic while cooking the onion, add whole toasted sesame, pumpkin or sunflower seeds.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Soak seaweed in cool water to cover, 10-15 minutes. Drain (save the water for soup stock, to water plants or to use in a bath. It has tons of nutients in it).
- 2Heat oil in a skillet and sautee the onions until they begin to brown.
- 3Add the seaweed and sautee until tender (how long this takes will depend on the type- averaging about 10 minutes).
- 4Stir in the tahini and a splash of water it the tahini is very thick.
- 5Stir in the tamari until all is smooth. Finish with a dash of umeboshi vineger, to taste.
