(from the Cornish Seaweed Company)

Ingredients:

40g dry weight sea spaghetti

1 tsp each cumin seeds, mustard seeds,

turmeric and a pinch of dried or fresh

chilli and a nub of grated ginger

1 tbsp tomato paste

6 tbsp gram flour

Squeeze of fresh lemon juice

1 small onion, plus S&P to taste

Method:

1. Rehydrate the sea spaghetti for half

an hour, drain, rinse and chop into

pieces roughly 2 inches long.

2. Mix together the dry ingredients.

3. Stir the tomato paste and a splash

of water together then add to dry

ingredients, add enough water to

form a thick batter.

4. Stir in the seaweed, ginger and chilli.

5. Fry in a pan of hot oil for 3-4 minutes

bake at 200C for about 30 minutes).

MAKING CARBS COUNT

You can buy dried seaweed,

sea salt as well as a range of

Kelp me if you can

Kombu (a member of the Kelp family) is

probably most well known for the unique

effect it has on the taste buds, which

the Japanese call Umami and what we

know in the West as our fifth flavour

('savoury'). Kombu is a very versatile

seaweed which adds vitamins and

minerals to any dish. It is used to make

broths and serves as a base ingredient

in stocks (such as dashi which is used

in miso soup).

According to an article in the

Huffington Post, seaweed contains

vitamins A and C, and is also a source

of calcium, which is one of the reasons

some red seaweed supplements are

included as part of some treatment plans

for osteoarthritis. However, serving sizes

are often not large enough to get a decent

boost in these nutrients.

Seaweed's best-known benefit is that

it is an extraordinary source of a nutrient

missing in almost every other food: iodine.

Consuming healthy levels of iodine is

critically important to maintaining a healthy

thyroid, a gland in your neck which helps

produce and regulate hormones. One gram

of brown seaweed contains roughly five to

50 times the recommended daily intake of

iodine, while red and green varieties provide

slightly less (the exact content depends on

the water in which it grows).

Many studies have shown seaweed

is an extraordinarily potent source of

antioxidants and also helps prevent

inflammation, which can contribute to

a host of ailments that include arthritis,

celiac disease, asthma, depression and

obesity.
