I've known about the health benefits of eating seaweed for years now, but earlier attempts to incorporate this mineral and vitamin rich sea vegetable into my diet didn't last for long. It's not because I didn't enjoy the salty strips, but I was less creative in the kitchen back then and didn't really know what to do with it, so usually I would end up nibbling on some dulse seaweed from the package.
I've since learned that seaweed can be sprinkled on salads, added to soups and sauces and even baked into a salty treat. Indeed, because of the saltiness of seaweed, it is an ideal addition to brothy soups, like this savory and salty miso, mushroom and seaweed soup that I made for the dinner the other night.
Not only does seaweed contain loads of minerals and vitamins essential to good health, it is also good for your skin and hair and is known to have cleansing properties. I now have three different types of seaweed on hand and plan to incorporate this healthy gift from the ocean into my diet more often.
