Creamy Pepper Pesto Pasta with Chipotle Seaweed Flakes

Creamy Pepper Pesto Pasta with Chipotle Seaweed Flakes

  This is a hearty, creamy, gorgeous pasta that really embraces the umami greatness of our Spicy Seaweed Flakes. And it’s a fantastic way to sneak some nutritious seaweed into your diet, without being too overwhelming. This pasta has become a weekly “go-to” in our house, and will probably remain a staple for years to come. It’s also a great way to use up any produce that may be on the brink of going bad. Add some mushrooms, roasted brussels sprouts… or even that bag of frozen greens that has been in the back of your freezer for too long....

Seaweed Crackers with Avocado Dip (or Dressing)

Our friend Spencre at Gingertooth put together this absolute dream of a recipe for us that takes a new twist on crackers-and-dip. It's no secret that seaweed belongs in crackers and we love the pairing with a creamy, rich dip like her Creamy Avo Dip. If you need a green dressing for rice bowls, salad, or veggie dish, this dip can be thinned out with water to make a scrumptious salad dressing.

Seaweed Pasta

Seaweed Pasta

In full disclosure, I haven't made pasta very many times in my life. But my husband just received his great-grandmother's pasta maker. His great-grandmother was born in Italy and came to the United States, eventually landing in Pennsylvania. I don't know much more (yet!) about the history of this particular pasta maker, but it has been an inspiration to start making fresh pasta. I think making pasta is much easier if you have a stand mixer. We don't. So we kneaded it by hand, which took a long time and constantly had me questioning if we were doing this right....

Seaweed Snack Mix

Seaweed Snack Mix

This snack mix doesn't need too much of an introduction -- it should come with a warning though: it is seriously addicting. Something about the combination of sweet, salty, and crunchy makes this a snack mix that will satisfy and keep you coming back for more!

Ingredients 1 ½ cup of cashews ¼ cup of sesame seeds 1 tablespoon olive oil  2 tablespoons of honey*  1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar  1 teaspoon turmeric  1...
