Seaweed and cabbage come together in “super slaw”
We discuss the health benefits of seaweed regularly on this blog – in part because scientists keep discovering more! From facilitating your weight loss efforts to boosting your overall brain power, sometimes it seems that there is nothing this plant can't do. If you've decided to incorporate nutrient-rich Seagreens® seaweed into your diet, perhaps as part of a New Year's resolution to take control of your well-being, you may be overwhelmed by the options at first. The sea vegetable has certainly become a hot item in recent years, but how should you go about including it in your meals?
Unless you've grown up with seaweed recipes, it's understandable to be a bit hesitant. Some of the world's best chefs are using the plant for pastas, salads, artisan seasonings and more, so where exactly should you begin? To narrow the field, try taking a look at some of the dishes you prepare on a regular basis to see if there are any opportunities to introduce seaweed. Recently, The Independent – an Irish news outlet – provided a tantalizing recipe that introduces seaweed nutrients to coleslaw for a phenomenal and tangy "super slaw."
"Use red cabbage, add another Irish superfood – seaweed – and lots of super seeds and apples, and you have a super slaw," the source states.
In addition to cabbage and seaweed, The Independent's super slaw calls for cranberries, carrots, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, onions and alfalfa sprouts. The mayonnaise substitute is whipped together using apple cider vinegar, creme fraiche, sunflower oil and honey.
Seaweed-rich super slaw makes an excellent side dish, but this is just one of many ways to bring seaweed nutrients to the table. Seagreens® seaweed is a natural multi-nutrient whole food containing all the vitamin groups, minerals and trace elements, and can be taken as Food Capsules and added to meals as The Mineral Salt and the Culinary Ingredient.
