Seagreens® classic ready-milled grains and pieces of wild Ascophyllum seaweed are used in cooking and baking, or sprinkled on almost any raw or cooked food. Ask for them at your local heath store as Culinary Ingredient (grains), and Salad & Condiment (pieces).
Like Kate Magic's raw Cacaomole below, these recipes all make good use of Seagreens®. And try our Summer Tonic recipe on the Salad & Condiment page.
Seagreens® Culinary Ingredient is one of Kate's favourite raw ingredients. It provides a balance of all the nutrients and is wonderfully versatile. You can add it to almost any dish - even chocolate! Her Raw Living book has more than half a dozen recipes containing Seagreens!
Cacaomole by Kate Wood, from her book Raw Magic, published by Raw Creation, 2008
Click here to see Kate's Cacaomole - serves 2, takes 10 minutes, and it's easiest with a blender.
What you need 2 avocados; 1 lemon, juiced; 1 tablespoon hemp oil; 1 garlic clove; 1 teaspoon Seagreens® Culinary Ingredient; a pinch of crystal salt (or Seagreens® new Mineral Salt!); 2 tablespoons cacao nibs.
"This is one of my favourite lunches. Spread on a nori sheet and, rammed with alfalfa sprouts, you couldn't fit any more nutrition in each bite. If you don't have a blender, you can still make this - just crush the garlic by hand and mash everything up with a fork."
What to do Remove the flesh from the avocados and place in the blender. Add the lemon juice, hemp oil, garlic and Seagreens. Blend to a purée, adding water or more oil if you need to. Stir in the cacao by hand.
