Sea vegetables have phytonutrients found nowhere else: special types of fibre, and unique carotenoids and polysaccharides, and various polyphenol defense compounds, each of which may have anti-cancer properties.
I encourage everyone to try experimenting until you find the sea vegetables that you love and incorporate them into your diet. This dish is my favourite - nutrient dense and so tasty. Serve with a bowl of miso soup and some grated daikon.
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the soba noodles for 3 minutes.
