Browse our Sea Vegetables to bring a fresh and plant-based finish to a variety of popular home cooked meals and elegant dishes. In addition, we have a range of Seaweed from crunchy Salty Fingers and Samphire, to a strong ocean flavoured Sea Lettuce.
Our range of Sea Vegetables also have great nutritional value. For example, One Green Planet notes that Seaweed is considered a superfood. The oldest plant family on Earth, Sea Veggies are packed with more nutrients than any other edible plant. They are said to be filled with antioxidants and have antibiotic properties. They are also high in protein, calcium, and fibre. If you want to explore the health benefits of Sea Vegetables in more depth, follow Seaweed Decoded: Why It’s Essential on a Vegan Diet.
Cooking with Sea Vegetables is still a new trend in the kitchen, and it’s not a common item on your weekly shopping list. Sea Veggies have been used for centuries in Asian cuisine and are now slowly gaining in popularity.
We have a variety of Seaweed available, and most are found in the water along the coast. Most of our Sea Veggies can be eaten raw or cooked, this will add a salty, umami flavour to foods. In addition, their sea salt flavour and crunchy texture, our Sea Vegetables can be used in a variety of ways. To really enhance the flavour, you can blanch or fry them, or even eat them raw.
Since Vegan foodies don’t eat fish, getting certain nutrients like omega 3 and calcium, can be a bit challenging. That’s where our many types of Sea Veggies come into play. Furthermore, they also add beautiful colour and delicate flavour to a range of dishes. Use your imagination and bask in the joy of serving exquisite food.
I love to use products from Nurtured in Norfolk in all most every dish I create. We use a lot of Sea Vegetables, especially Seaweed, as it works perfectly with fish dishes.Matthew Johnson (Gold Leaf Catering)
