Hiziki seaweed with roasted walnuts and vegetables

Somehow I think not many people pair seaweed with nuts, but I must say that it┬┤s one of my favourite ways to prepare seaweed dishes! It adds richness and crunchiness to this otherwise “clean” tasting vegetable, which can be a bit bland and/or fishy for some people ­čśÇ

I usually also sautee some vegetables on oil as a base – here I used my most common pair of onion and carrot and I also added in parsley stems (don┬┤t┬á throw away those guys!). Then I tossed in the hiziki (first soaked for at least half an hour in water, then drained and rinsed), poured┬á in water to nearly cover the veggies and simmered it all for about 30-45 minutes under a lid on a low flame. Near the end I added a handful of roasted walnuts and seasoned the dish with some salt, shoyu soy sauce and apple cider vinegar.

I served the seaweed with rice pressure cooked with chestnuts (dried ones, so I first had to soak them overnight) and some plain black beans, cooked only with salt.

Veggie sautee with apple and walnuts

Normally I don┬┤t mix fruit or nuts into my vegetable dishes (it is not something for delicate digestion to mix these with grain or with each other), but once in a while this adds some fun and unexpected details to an otherwise standard veggie macro dish such as this simple sautee-

I just heated some oil on a pan and then sauteed onion for a while until soft and beginning to brown. Then I added leek, white cabbage, curly green cabbage, carrot, turnip, all cut up into rather small pieces. The fun addition: a small amount of cubed apple and chopped walnuts, cooked together with the rest. The sautee was seasoned with a splash of shoyu soy sauce and apple cider vinegar.

Served with a rice/amaranth mixture topped with a gomasio of black sesame and salt (love the colour contrast!).
