Sea Veggie Salad

Many new to vegetarianism believe that once they rid their diets of meat, that they also will never be able to enjoy the taste of the sea again. This is a definite fallacy! Seaweed and other sea vegetables provide that ocean-y taste without the guilt, not too mention they are packed with nutrition.

Today we ventured to Whole Foods and came across a bag of sea vegetables. The brand, Sea Tangle, imports their sea vegetables from Korea, and are mighty delicious. The $3.39 bag contains 2.5 servings (but is more like 4), and an ample amount of sea veggies. You do not necessarily have to buy this brand, I’m just throwing it out there because I ended up buying it :). Many Asian markets sell sea vegetables where they can probably be bought for an even lower price.

The bag has: seaweed, agar-agar, seaweed stems, kelp, seastring, gufuweed, and montagne. Sea vegetables are high in Calcium, they provide  20% of your daily value per serving, and also 10% of your daily Iron requirement.

** Sea Veggie Salad**

This recipe serves 2!

What you’ll need:

2 cups of spinach tofu noodles or kelp noodles

1 cup sea vegetables

1 tablespoon rice vinegar (or red wine vinegar)

2 teaspoons Braggs Nutritional Yeast Flakes

Drain any excess water from the noodles. Rinse the sea vegetables if they are coated in salt (They often will be to keep the veggies fresh). Rinse thoroughly and it is advisable to soak them too for about 2 minutes. Drain the water.

Add the noodles and vegetables to a bowl. Stir together, add vinegar and Braggs Nutritional yeast flakes.

There you go! A super low-fat, and nutrient packed meal. Enjoy!

About govegetarianista86

After transitioning to a meatless diet two years ago, Lauren and I had no choice but to learn lots of great vegetarian recipes---and fast---after all, we always loved great food. The reason for our decision to omit meat and most dairy products from our lives was quite simple. A vegetarian diet is healthier, kinder, and ironically much cheaper than one with meat. We created this website to show that being a vegetarian is one of the easiest and most rewarding lifestyles to partake in, and hope that both vegetarians and aspiring vegetarians alike will visit Go-Vegetarianista habitually. :) About the authors: Nadya Rousseau is an actor/writer/producer residing in Beverly Hills, CA. She moved to Los Angeles almost five years ago at the age of nineteen to pursue her career and to escape the boredom of her small town. As maintaining a svelte figure is often pivotal in the entertainment industry, she finds she has no trouble staying slim and healthy as a vegetarian. In addition to loving good food and helping others, she enjoys engaging in sarcastic banter--keep an eye out for her frequent sardonic jokes--you'll surely be amused!! Lauren Rheims, is a native of Pomona, CA, and now resides in Beverly Hills, CA. She is a fashion and nature photographer, and of course loves shooting pictures of super yummy food! Lauren at first was apprehensive about becoming vegetarian, being of Creole descent, enjoying delicious seafood and meat, was more or less second nature. However after she discovered just how easy it was to enjoy the same delectable meals sans meat, she was thrilled! Lauren is excited to show everyone the simplicity and allure of vegetarian fare--and just how fun it can be!
