Kelp: A nutrient-dense, shelf-stable, versatile, tasty pantry staple

Posted by Josh Rogers on

Ok, so COVID-19 just made you panic buy half dozen bags of dried nuts. And now you're staring at them like: Wow. That's a lot of nuts. How am I gonna eat all these nuts?

Seaweed should be the opposite of a panic buy.

Harvested from the cold, pristine waters of the Gulf of Maine, it's always right here for you. 

That said, right now may be a great time to restock.

If you're a recurring customer: Thank you! Small businesses like ours rely on and appreciate your support at times like these.

If you're a newbie: Now's really a perfect opportunity to start cooking with seaweed!

Why?
  • 10X higher in minerals than most vegetables
  • Broad spectrum of around 60 minerals
  • Vitamin K
  • DHA omega oils
  • Essential amino acids
  • Antioxidants
  • Anti-inflammatory agents
  • Digestive aids
  • Very long shelf life
  • Culinarily versatile
  • Delicious umami flavor
Since it's so incredibly nutrient dense, just a few ounces of dried seaweed translates into many servings. This all adds up to make dried seaweed a key pantry staple.

Best of all: You don't need a recipe.

Easy things you can do with a dried seaweed like wakame (pictured):
  • Snip pieces into broth, soup, chowder, pasta, rice, bean or egg dishes
  • Steam it like would a green like spinach
  • Soak a few leaves in room temp water for 10-15 minutes and chop for salad
  • Brew some for an herbal wellness tea
We also carry other dried seaweeds like dulse, nori and kombu. Or if you're not ready to cook with it, there's seaweed seasonings, pickles, salsa, jerky, power bars and even our very own tea.

How do you use wakame in your kitchen?
