Crowd-pleasing, seaweed-boosted veg recipes #NationalVegetarianWeek

National Vegetarian Week is all about enjoying delicious, plant-based food.

As veg patches, markets and farm shops burgeon with home-grown and local produce, it's time to get creative, try something new and relish in the fruits of the earth.....and sea!

Seaweed is a remarkable veggie ingredient to cook with and use as a seasoning, thanks to its:

  • flavour (it tickles the taste buds with the fifth taste, umami)
  • natural saltiness (which means you can cut back on added salt) 
  • health-boosting nature (it's literally crammed with vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants)

For the dairy-free veggies, seaweed can play an important role as a natural source of iodine, essential for thyroid health.

So, without further ado, here are a collection of our favourite seaweed-boosted veg recipes:
