I am sure you have heard of the benefits of seaweed. Seaweed is very high in minerals and trace minerals. Most people do not get enough minerals. Seaweed has the broadest range of minerals of any food.
Seaweed is high in chlorophyll which helps to oxygenate the blood. Seaweed helps to decrease fat accumulation.
It is high in:
- Vitamin K
- It is high in protein (about 40% protein) and low in calories. It packs a nutritional punch!
Below is the recipe for the seaweed salad pictured above.
SEAWEED SESAME SALAD
- 3 Tbsp sesame seeds
- ¼ tsp salt (I use Himalayan salt)
- ¼ C dried Wakame seaweed
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- ½ tsp sesame oil
- In a coffee grinder put 3 Tbsp sesame seeds and ¼ tsp salt. Grind until well mixed.
Soak wakame seaweed in filtered water for 15-20 minutes. Rinse with filtered water and drain well. Squeeze in hands to get out excess water. Place in bowl.
To bowl of soaked wakame add 2 Tbsp of the sesame and salt mixture. Add 1 tsp lemon juice and ½ tsp sesame oil. Stir well.
I added some whole sesame seeds and sprouted mung bean sprouts on top, but that is optional. I also ended up adding more of the ground sesame and salt mixture because it was so good!
I ate my salad right away and it was FANTASTIC!!! You could probably store it for a few hours or even overnight in the fridge
