    Hijiki is a distinctive jet-black sea vegetable that grows on the ocean floor in long thin strands. It is most widely popular as an ingredient in Japanese cuisine. It is naturally rich in flavour with a delicate texture. Its colour contrasts beautifully with other vibrant ingredients and works wonderfully well when combined with grains and other vegetables.

Top quality

Super nourishing and tasty sea veg. Great with brown rice, sweet root vegetables or salads.

Annie Davies
Hijiki is my favourite sea vegetable

I love Hijiki and have always bought it from Clearspring for many years as I know I can trust the product for quality. I love using it in my vegetable stews and soups.


I highly recommend Hijiki made into a sauce for Soba noodles when blitzed with Tofu, Shitake mushroom and soya sauce. Great snack or more substantial meal served with salmon and vegetables of your choice.

Easy to use and I like to know that is healthy.

I used to use Hijiki a lot, but I hadn't seen it in my wholefood store for some time, so I was delighted to discover it at a reduced price at Clearspring online. My favourite use is to stew it with carrots cut across in chunks, a little sesame oil, some tamari and a tablespoon of water. Delicious and very fortifying in late Autumn. Good price and fast delivery.
