Celebrity chef makes big prediction about seaweed recipes
Previously on this blog, we reported that seaweed has been projected to be one of the biggest culinary trends of 2014, as it combines high nutritional value, enticing flavor and a compatibility with practically every dietary restriction. Vegetarian and vegan cuisine, once considered somewhat niche among restaurateurs and the general public, has become commonplace. In fact, failing to feature vegetarian and vegan options is considered bad form at any eatery. The same is quickly becoming true when it comes to gluten-free fare.
In light of the ever-evolving culinary landscape, another celebrity chef has backed seaweed as an ingredient to watch in the year to come. Elizabeth Falkner, who has appeared on Bravo and The Food Network and acts as executive chef at New York's prestigious Corvo Bianco, spoke to a FOX affiliate in Iowa about this sea vegetable.
"A nutritional powerhouse, seaweed will make its way into more recipes this year," the source states. "Falkner uses hijiki seaweed to create an Asian-style coleslaw that's super-healthy, easy to make and a great accompaniment to a variety of dishes. Dried seaweed also makes a nutritious gelatin and thickener, without a hint of fishiness, so look for it to appear in dessert."
It's already possible to savor seaweed recipes in restaurants across the country, but it is also incredibly simple to experiment with this plant at home too. Seagreens® seaweed is a natural multi-nutrient whole food containing all the vitamin groups, minerals and trace elements that can be savored as The Mineral Salt and the Culinary Ingredient, as well as taken daily as Food Capsules.
