Arame Seaweed is a sea vegetable that typically comes in small flaky strips like these. They are typically added to soups, stir-fries and salads, and have a typically crunchy texture and seaweedy taste. Arame seaweed has a more delicate flavour than most seaweeds, and so is especially good for those who are first trying seaweed. It goes well with tofu, sushi and other oriental ingredients.
Like most seaweed, arame is very dark green in colour. It can be added to soups as-is, but is usually soaked before adding to stir-fries or salads. Arame seaweed is very high in fibre, and can be used to boost the fibre content of meals. It is also high in iron, protein and magnesium.
Clearspring Arame Seaweed is from the species Eisenia bicyclis, which is harvested from the wild and dried in Japan. No added ingredients.
Soak arame seaweed before adding to stir-fries and stews. Arame is a little like cabbage, and cooks similarly. 3 to 4 minutes is the ideal cooking time. You can also add arame seaweed to soups without soaking first (the soup soaks the seaweed as it cooks).
