    VegSocialWorker's Note:

    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

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 ounce sea vegetables (sea palm, arame, hijiki)
    • 1 onion, sliced
    • 1 tablespoon sesame or 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons tahini
    • 1/2 teaspoon tamari
    • 1 dash umeboshi vinegar

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Soak 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).
    2. 2
      Heat oil in a skillet and sautee the onions until they begin to brown.
    3. 3
      Add the seaweed and sautee until tender (how long this takes will depend on the type- averaging about 10 minutes).
    4. 4
      Stir in the tahini and a splash of water it the tahini is very thick.
    5. 5
      Stir in the tamari until all is smooth. Finish with a dash of umeboshi vineger, to taste.
    6. 6
      Enjoy!

      Very fast, delicious, and healthy! I used wakame seaweed, and seasoned rice vinegar until I can get to an Asian market for the hard-to-find umeboshi vinegar. And I did save the seaweed water for plant watering! Thanks, AJO! Made for Vegetarian Recipe Swap.
