Preparation, uses, and tips
Traditionally added to miso soup, wakame is
also good with other vegetables, or in salads,
stir-fry dishes, and rice dishes.
A sea vegetable closely related to wakame is alaria (Alaria esculenta); it is
common to Atlantic waters. Black or dark green in color, alaria is similar to wakame in
appearance, taste, and nutrition, but needs a longer cooking time than wakame. Alaria is good
in stews and grain dishes. It can also be used in
miso soup instead of the traditional wakame.
