Creamy Sesame Arame with Skinny Soba Somen Noodles

Sea vegetables have phytonutrients found nowhere else, special types of fibre, and unique carotenoids and polysaccharides, and various polyphenol defense compounds, each of which may have anti-cancer properties. I encourage everyone to try experimenting until you find the sea vegetables that you love and incorporate them into your diet. This dish is my favourite, I could eat it to a band playing, nutrient dense and so tasty. Serve with a bowl of miso soup and some grated daikon.

Serves 4

Ingredients

Method

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the soba noodles for 3 minutes.
  2. Drain and rinse in cold water, set aside.
  3. Place the rinsed arame in a small pan and add enough filtered water to cover, bring to a boil and simmer on low heat for 15 minutes.
  4. Gently stir in the sauerkraut, tahini and corn and simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Arrange the soba noodles in a bowl and top with the creamy arame.
  6. Garnish with the spring onions and lemon zest. Delicious.
