When you think of seaweed, you’ll immediately be reminded of Japanese food such as sushi.
It’s a delicious, low-cal way to add a boost of nutrients to your day. Plus, since it’s packed with vitamins from A to zinc, this underwater veggie makes every dish a total ~splash~
However, do you know that there are many other ways to enjoy the delectable savoury snack? Here are a few quick ideas:
1. Add to toast
Crumble dried seaweed on top of your toast for a subtle flavour and make it a more satisfying meal by adding cheese, smoked salmon, smashed avocado, or hummus.
2. Make it as sandwich
Take four sheets of seaweed and wrap your favourite toppings such as rice, cucumber, sauce and anything else your taste buds desire! You can also add dried seaweed into the sandwich for extra crunch.
3. Mini seaweed wraps (or sliders)
Slice a cucumber very thin and use the pieces as wraps for broken-up seaweed sheets and a creamy spread like avocado or a homemade sesame dressing.
4. Pair with avocado
Cut an avocado in half and scoop out the pit. Top half with a sprinkle of crumbled dried seaweed, a squirt of lemon juice, and a teaspoon of sesame seeds.
5. Seaweed Omelette
Who doesn’t love omelettes? It’s delicious for breakfast on its own, lunch in a bento box or dinner over rice. By pairing it with seaweed, rolled into the middle, it will give this egg dish a crunchy bite. Add some mushrooms for a bump of flavour!
6. Seaweed Hot Dog
This hot dog is based on a dog served at a restaurant and food cart in Vancouver. If you can’t make it over there to try this hot dog, it’s easy to make at home.
Just combine teriyaki sauce and mayonnaise with a seaweed topping. It’s like taking a bite out of vacation.
7. Mix with popcorn
This mix is like eating sushi in popcorn form. Okay, not really, but it’s tasty, especially if you’re a fan of umami flavours.
8. Seaweed Chips
They take almost no time to make. Brush with seasoning and sesame oil, then lightly toast and you’re ready to munch.
Besides that, you can also save time by purchasing ready-made seaweed chips from our Shopee store and enjoy them as is, or as a side dish!
