Hiziki for One

Hiziki with tahini and tofu

Hiziki is a wonderful addition to any meal. It is high in fiber and packed with minerals especially iron, calcium, and magnesium. This nutritious sea vegetable has a rich taste and delicate texture. When combined with tahini and tofu it makes for a nourishing dish with a deliciously unique flavor. Super great for the wintery time of the year. Enjoy! Love Chef Mel xx

Oh yes, and one more thing, hiziki is great for your hair!



¼ cup hiziki rinsed and soaked for 15 minutes - make sure use enough water as it will double in size
1 tablespoon tahini
¼ block tofu mashed
Spring water
1 tablespoon ume vinegar
Few drops shoyu
2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley


Strain the hijiki and place into a pan. I don't use the soaking water because it is too salty tasting. Instead, use it for watering your plants
Add enough fresh water to almost cover the hiziki and bring to a boil on a medium flame.
Simmer with a lid on a medium low flame for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, add the tahini, ume vinegar and few drops of shoyu to the tofu and mash well.
Add the tofu mixture to the hiziki and continue to cook for another 5 minutes.
Mix gently.
If there is an excess of water remove lid and simmer on a medium high flame. Stir from time to time.
Add the parsley, mix through and serve.
