Simmered hijiki seaweed

 Friday, September 19, 2008

Hijiki is a type of seaweed and considered a health food. It’s rich in fiber and essential minerals such as calcium and iron. In Japan hijiki is eaten in a salad, cooked with rice, or eaten as nimono. Nimono (煮物) is a dish that is cooked in a soup with various seasoning. This ‘hijiki no nimono’ goes great with rice so make sure to cook the rice in time and eat them together! Packaged hijiki in supermarkets is black and comes in short strips about the size of a match.

Interesting. I'm not much of a seaweed eater, though. I wonder how that tastes like?
