Easy Ways to Use Seaweed Flakes, Granules and Powder

(Raw) Kelp Granules & Powder
A Nutrition-packed Drink: Mix 1-2 tsp. into water, stir and drink as soon as possible (it will form a gel in less than a minute). Chase with juice. Or try mixing directly into juice.

Drink variations: Mix with any dehydrated green, purple, red or orange drink mix. (An example is barley grass drink, which is especially alkalinizing).

Smoothies: Blend 1-2 tsp. of powdered Kelp into any smoothie.

Kelp & EFA’s: Mix 1-2 tsp. Kelp with water and ground flax seeds, ground chia seeds (sold under various names, including “anutra” or “mila”), ground hemp seeds or hemp protein powder. For a broad spectrum of nutrition, include all ingredients in one glass.

Salad dressings: Add to any oil-and-vinegar (or oil-and-lemon juice) based dressing, homemade or premade. It will somewhat emulsify the dressing and make it a bit green. Suggested ¼ tsp. per serving.

Make your own dressing suggestion:
One serving:
¼ tsp. kelp powder
1 tbsp. rice vinegar
2 tbsp. toasted sesame oil
½ tsp. Herb & Duxelles Powder*
½ tsp. Frontier brand chopped dried mushrooms

*Herb & Duxelles Powder is a blend of herbs, shiitake and other powdered mushrooms. To order.

(non-Raw) Kelp Granules & Powder
Add to beans and other legumes: start with ½ tsp. of Kelp granules or powder per cup of uncooked beans. Add more if you like the flavor. This will turn the broth green and a bit gel-like. For canned beans, add ¼ tsp. when heating. More info and recipes
