How about another amazing creation (with a pinch of amazing seaweed) of Tagliatelle with Leeks & Chestnuts) from Marlene Watson-Tara

 

Ingredients

This recipe include 1/4 tsp of our PureSea Natural

3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

2 fresh rosemary sprigs, leaves picked and finely chopped

2 cups fresh chestnut mushrooms,
cut in half

¼ tsp Seaweed

 2 tablespoons safflower oil

1 cup chestnuts thinly sliced (cooked, vacuum packed)

3 small leeks, washed and thinly sliced

1 cup vegetable stock

Tamari or Shoyu (natural soy sauce

Tagliatelle

Handful of chopped fresh watercress

Fresh lemon zest

Method

Heat the oil and fry the garlic and the rosemary for 30 seconds. Add the mushrooms and fry for 5-10 minutes until they’re golden brown and all the moisture has evaporated. Season the mushrooms with a pinch of sea salt, the seaweed then add the chestnuts, cook another 5 minutes then spoon onto a plate and set aside. In the same pan add a splash of extra virgin olive oil and fry the leeks over a low heat for 10 minutes until softened. Add the vegetable bouillon and cook until mostly evaporated. Season well with some tamari, then mix in the garlicky mushroom/chestnut mixture. Meanwhile, cook the tagliatelle in boiling water for 8 minutes or according to the pan instructions, drain, then toss with the vegetables. Season and stir in a handful of chopped
fresh watercress.

 

Seaweed Health Benefits

Iodine is an essential trace element that is lacking in many diets, and is particularly important during pregnancy.  In the diet, iodine contributes to:

o Normal development in children
o High energy yielding metabolism
o Normal cognitive function
o Normal thyroid function

Research shows specific compounds in seaweed can help manage blood sugar and the feeling of fullness. You may have noticed no salt in this recipe! Seaweed is used to replace salt and enhance flavours.
