Miso Soup with Sea Lettuce

Ingredients:

4 Cups Water

1 T Miso Paste

1/2 C Chopped dry Sea Lettuce

1 T Chopped green onion (optional)

1/3 C Cubed tofu (optional)

2 pieces Kombu (optional)

This is a great soup base that stands up on it's own and can be dressed up as much as you like! Highly recommend adding kombu to the water as it heats for extra flavor and nutrition. This is a traditional healing broth that will leave you feeling satisfied and strong. Heat the water just until it starts to boil. (option to put 2 pieces dry kombu in while water is heating then remove. Can be chopped and added to soup as well). Turn heat off and add other ingredients. Serve after a few minutes when sea lettuce is rehydrated. 

Seaweed Salad

Ingredients:

For the dressing:

1/2 Cup nut butter of choice (we like peanut butter)

1/3 C Soy sauce or Tamari

2 T toasted sesame oil

4 tsp. Rice wine vinegar

2 T honey

Rehydrate dried seaweeds by soaking in water for 5 minutes. (option to blanch for 30 seconds in hot water than ice water if you want it more tender). Then chop/ slice into thin ribbons.

Eat immediately or store in fridge for up to 3 days.
