About Kombu Seaweed

Thick, wide strips of Kombu are commonly used to flavour Japanese soups, noodle broths and stocks. Kombu contains natural glutamic acid, an umami-providing amino acid that draws out the taste of other foods.

To prepare a basic stock, add one piece of kombu to a litre of water and bring to a simmer. If the kombu is soaked in the water for an hour first it will become tender enough after simmering to slice, season and add to vegetable dishes. A strip of kombu cooked with beans helps to soften them and improve digestibility.


Kombu Seaweed ingredients:

Clearspring Kombu is Laminaria japonica, sustainably wild harvested and dried in Japan.

Made in a dedicated nut free factory.

Why not try one of our healthy recipes using this product

Vegan Lentils, Artichokes and Roasted Tomatoes Salad Recipe

Summary: You could make this in 5 minutes, by using canned lentils, jarred artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes. Or you could go homemade and cook the lentils (it only takes about 15 minutes, especially if you add in a little kombu seaweed, which speeds up cooking for beans, peas and lentils), boil fresh spring artichokes in salty water before slicing them, and roasting your tomatoes in the oven. And these can be done in parallel. Why not try the 5 minute version for a quick lunch or packed lunch, especially if you make your lunch for the day in the morning before leaving for work, like many of us do. And try the all homemade version when you have more time on your hands. Either way, this is absolutely delicious, warm or cold. Serves 2 as a main or 4 as a starter.
