About our organic sea spaghetti seaweed
Harvested off the French coast, sea spaghetti is an edible brown algae with high amounts of dietary fibre. It’s a good source of calcium, iodine, magnesium, manganese and zinc. It is also rich in vitamins A, B2, B7, C, E and is a great source of protein.
Unlike other seaweeds, sea spaghetti is mild tasting with a lightly nutty flavour. It is often used in salads, or can be cooked separately and added to pasta.
When cooked it is similar to spaghetti, hence the name, and can be eaten on its own or mixed with pasta, cooked or cold soaked. It can also be added to soups and stews or even eaten cold soaked in a salad.
Before cooking, soak it for 10 to 20 minutes in some lemon juice, then simmer 10 minutes until al dente. Serve with a little oil, salt and freshly ground black pepper. It’s delicious!
