Kelp Powder Recipes

Hi, I have just purchased a load of kelp powder as I was keen to try it but am a little stuck for ideas on what to do with it! Does anyone have any tips/recipe ideas/foods that it goes well with?
Any help would be appreciated :)

you can mix it with some toasted sesame seeds, dried bonito flakes, salt, sugar, and black pepper and use it as a seasoning for steamed rice.

May your kilt be short enough to do a jig, but long enough to cover your Lucky Charms.

I use it for a salt substitute which is pretty good.

Salt Substitute (Kelp)

It uses kelp, which has trace amounts of sodium chloride, much less than table salt.

Yield: 1/4 cup (Sml Spice Jar)

3 Tbs dried basil
2 Tbs dried savory
2 Tbs celery seed
1 1/2 Tbsp dried sage
1 Tbs dried thyme
1 tsp powdered kelp (obtained at most health food stores)
1 Tbs dried marjoram

1. Powder the herbs in a grinder or blender.
2. Store in air tight container away from heat and light.
3. Use in soups, stews, eggs, meats, any recipes to replace salt.

Thanks for the great link, McNerd! Great blends there.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.
