This recipe provides many trace minerals necessary for energy production via it’s main ingredient: Arame seaweed. Arame contains calcium, zinc, iodine, iron and sodium. However, the dish does not taste like the sea nor like fish.
- 1/4 cup chopped Red Onion or shallott
- 1/2 bag of Arame Seaweed (we use Emerald Cove and can buy single bags in Whole Foods for $5-$6, but any brand will do)
- 2 cups Organic Baby Spinach
- 2 – 3 cloves of Garlic
- pepper/lemon to taste
- Simmer red onion alone until it is translucent.
- Add seaweed (this should cook until it is soft, which can take up to 30 min.). Keep it on low heat to simmer without onion burning.
- When seaweed is 3/4 cooked, add garlic. Keep heat low to avoid cooking the garlic too quickly.
- When garlic is getting dark (we like it crunchy) add spinach.
- When spinach wilts, dish is done!
- Top with sesame seeds (Seaweed Gomasio: sesame seeds, sea salt and garlic)
Extras: add shredded carrot before serving; thaw frozen peas and toss in with spinach; add red/yellow peppers with spinach.
