Sesame Chive Salad Sprinkle
You are going to love this recipe!
It is easy to put together and is so versatile in its uses.
I mix up a quart of this at a time and it doesn’t last long!
We keep a small bowl of Sesame Chive Sprinkle on the kitchen table and sprinkle it on savory breakfast dishes, hummus, tacos, sandwiches and soups.
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped dried chives
- 1 teaspoon small pieces or powdered seaweed (wakame, nori, hijiki, dulse or arame)
- ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
- Measure out the ingredients
- Mix the dried chives, black pepper and the finely minced seaweed of your choice into the sesame seeds
- Put some of the Sesame Chive Sprinkle into a little bowl with a spoon and keep it on your kitchen table
- Put the remainder of the sprinkle into a jar with a lid for storage. Keep it close by, because you will be filling the bowl on the table often!
- Sprinkle onto salad, eggs, rice and veggie dishes
The combination of all of these ingredients together is nothing but delicious and nutritious. Some people have difficulty eating seaweed because of its strong taste and scent. When mixed together these ingredients meld into a crunchy pleasant flavor. The sesame seeds absorb the intensity of the seaweed and the pepper and chives add a pungent note that enhances any salad or leafy green dish.
If you are looking to enhance the nutritional content of your food, this one simple recipe delivers big time. Seaweed is a super food that is one of the most nutritionally dense plants on the planet. It is high in calcium and potassium and alkalizes the blood.
Sesame Chive Sprinkle is good for anyone, but is especially supportive for menopausal women. The seaweed helps to cool the body and the pepper and chives enhance the sometimes sluggish digestion that can occur during menopause. The rich mineral content is helpful for menopause and women of all ages.
