I didn't like it when I was first introduced to it. I couldn't get past the slight seaweed taste. Then I tried it with salad dressing and have learned to love it. I don't even need the salad dressing to eat it anymore. I have heard that it tastes fantastic in soups and stir fries, but my family eats it on our salads - almost every night. The first time Son ate it, I thought he was going to spit it out, but he didn't. He chewed it up, said "mmm..yummy" and asked for more. I love it when he gobbles up the healthy stuff.
As you may have read in my previous posts, I am almost vegan. Okay, so maybe not almost but I aspire to be vegan. I try to limit my meat consumption to once per week and stick to organically raised chicken. Having a low/no meat diet means I try to eat other high protein foods. Dulse is one of those high protein foods. In addition to protein, it also contains almost every dietary mineral and is a source of vitamins A, C, E and B vitamins, calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc and iodine (source:www.livestrong.com/article/418798-the-benefits-of-dulse-seaweed/).
I have to say, now that I have grown to love this sea vegetable I understand why some people I know keep 55 pounds of it on hand. It's delicious and so good for us. How do you eat your dulse?
