Mekabu is the antioxidant rich root of wakame seaweed, undaria pinnatifida. Mekabu seaweed is finely shredded and then dried, so just soak in water to rehydrate.

Mekabu seaweed creates a glutinous gel when it rehydrated, which surrounds the forest green seaweed strands. Use the seaweed together with its sticky coating to thicken soups or compliment natto – many love the unctuous viscous feel. Else just rinse well to remove. Serve rehydrated mekabu in seaweed salads or toss with udon noodles.

Ingredients: Mekabu seaweed. Product of Korea.
