Spring Bruschetta with Garlic Kelp Butter

Bruschetta is an antipasto from Italy consisting of grilled bread rubbed with garlic and typically garnished with tomatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper. This version uses a garlic kelp spread instead of the traditional olive oil. This has the advantage of reducing salt/sodium and providing other essential minerals and natural iodine.

Start Your Morning in High-Gear with Seaweed & Other Raw Ingredients

For me, making smoothies dates back to the 1980’s in Canada, when I suffered fom exhaustion and decided it was time to clean up my act. My Natural Health Practitioner had recommended a daily diet high in sprouts (especially sunflower and buckwheat) and other superfoods, made into smoothies. Now that I live in New Zealand, I do not have my chosen sprouts year-round… but I have discovered more about seaweed. Working with it everyday for the last ten years has opened my eyes to its variety & versatility. I haven’t stopped making smoothies, using various powdered seaweed as a key ingredient. But I hear you say… I don’t think I can handle it in a smoothie ! Well, that is because it is often assumed that seaweed has a strong taste or limited ability to combine with land food…nothing is further from the truth!….read on :-)

Crab Imperial, seasoned with Chilli Kelp

I had my first taste of ‘Crab Imperial > Crab Au Gratin (in French)’ when I visited St-Pierre & Miquelon in 1982. I have since done my version of this recipe, which is seasoned with Chilli kelp instead of salt & cayenne pepper, more times than I care to remember, as it proves to still be a favourite amongst family and friends. Kelp is a positive alternative to salt and the chilli adds the required warmth to the dish.
