Clearspring Japanese kombu 50g
Soak and cook for 20-30 minutes to make 'dashi'.
Thick, wide strips of Kombu are commonly used to flavour Japanese soups, noodle broths and stocks (dashi).
Kombu contains natural glutamic acid - an umami-providing amino acid - that draws out the taste of other foods.
To prepare a basic stock, add one piece of kombu to a litre of water and bring to a simmer. If the kombu is soaked in the water for an hour first it will become tender enough after simmering to slice, season and add to vegetable dishes.
A strip of kombu cooked with beans helps to soften them and improve digestibility.
Kombu contains a wide range of minerals and is especially rich in iodine.
Clearspring Kombu is Laminaria japonica, sustainably wild harvested and dried in Japan.
Dried Kombu sea vegetable (Laminaria japonica)
Seaweed is high in iodine. Anyone with thyroid problems should seek medical advice before using seaweeds.
