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.

Easy to prepare and a little goes a long way. Fabulous in soups and stews, wonderful in an Asian style broth with shiitake mushrooms and other veg. Would recommend as an interesting addition to the diet which will also benefit the microbiome.
