Seaweed bacon is the vegan alternative to bacon everyone’s been waiting for! The seaweed is called dulse, a type of red algae, and it has a naturally smoky and salty flavour.
Dulse is already popular in the culinary world, though it’s commonly found in dried powder form as a seasoning. But a few years ago a strain of dulse was discovered that, when fried, satisfied the bacon cravings of even the most ardent carnivore.
For best results, crisp the seaweed bacon in a frying pan over a medium heat with some oil. When the purply-red seaweed has turned mostly green, it’s ready to eat – this should only take 5-10 seconds on each side. Enjoy on avocado toast, toss through salads, or even crumble over pasta.
Also add the seaweed bacon as an ingredient in creamy or cheesy sauces. It won’t crisp up, but will still add a smoky bacon-like depth.
Seaweed has made its way into the spotlight as one of the world’s best natural superfoods. Seaweed is full of essential vitamins, minerals and proteins. It’s also one of the most sustainable ‘crops’ to farm, as all it requires is sunlight. The seaweed doesn’t need pesticides, artificial fertilisers or any genetic modification to bring out its benefits – so it’s completely organic and non-GMO, too.
One pack of seaweed bacon contains 5 servings.
Ingredients: 100% wild organic seaweed from France. May contain traces of crustaceans.
