In light of our worries about radioactive particles affecting us on the West coast, here’s a simple recipe for seaweed soup that is tasty and will increase the levels of nonradioactive iodine in your body!?
3 tablespoons dried wakame (Navitas has an organic source from Tasmania)
3 carrots, thinly sliced
3-4 large cabbage leaves, thinly sliced
Several cups of homemade chicken or vegetable stock (I love Naoko Moore’s recipe)
Place wakame in a soup bowl and add fresh water. Allow to sit for 10 minutes to fully reconstitute.
Bring stock, carrots and cabbage to boil then simmer until vegetables are soft. I know, in theory it should be raw cruciferous but it just doesn’t work texturally for me with this soup.
Strain the wakame and add to soup pot. Allow to simmer for a minute then turn off the heat.
Pour into bowl and top with some really good extra virgin olive oil for additional radioprotective effect.
