Seaweed


Quickly soaked arame and thinly cut matchsticks of carrot, stir-fried with ginger and sesame seeds.

Tamari and fragrant, toasted sesame oil drizzled over at the end.

A ten minute, mineral-rich lunch for one.

Reviving.

Looks delicious! There should be more of this elegant non-cooking cooking in my home.

This reminds me of hijiki that's not been stewed and heavily sweetened w/ tamari. Any similarities? The light cluster of matchsticks are a tempting invitation for a pair of chopsticks.

Thank you! I now have a new and interesting way to prepare a carrot dish.

Yours looks so yummy.

Cindy, non-cooking is such a joy at times!

Susan, it is like hijiki, just lighter as you say and not so salty. The arame ends up looking like strands of angel-hair pasta and the carrot and ginger brighten up a dulled palate.

Hi Cynthia, carrots often end up in soups and stocks around here, but I'm always keen to find something else to do with them!
