Arame Seaweed, Apple & Hazelnut Salad
Serves 1 | Prep time - 5 minutes | Cooking time - 25 minutes
Packed with vitamins and minerals, Arame seaweed is high in iodine, iron, vitamin A, magnesium and calcium and has long been touted as a wonder food in Eastern countries and lauded as largely responsible for long life expectancy. My Arame Seaweed Salad pairs the power of seaweed with the super nutritious algae, spirulina, for a salad that's hard to beat on the nutritional scale! I've added apple and hazelnuts for a sweet crunch. Tash x
