Dr Oz: Nori, Wakame, Kombu Seaweed Recipes

In this segment, Dr Oz introduced Maoshing, Ni, PhD, Chinese medicine doctor, to show you how 3 common types of seaweed could improve your health. According to Dr. Ni, seaweed has been a staple in Asian diets for thousands of years. There are over 20 edible seaweeds that are part of multicellular algae and are quite tasty. Dr. Ni clarified that while seafood is most associated with Asian culture, seaweed is also eaten in Ireland and Scotland.

    wish I could view the video of today’s show of dr. oz. ….wondering why the nori veggie sushi roll gets dipped in sesame oil or water??? that is what is said at the end of the recipe??? is that to ‘seal’ it??? I can hardly wait to find this seaweed and make these. I use to live in Japan when I was a teenager….I wish I could view these dr. oz videos but I always get an error message saying that it is no longer available….. 🙁

    On the December 22nd episode about seaweed brown seaweed capsules were discussed along with a second supplement. What was the second supplement? O too wish I could view that video again.

    I was very interested in differnet ways to enjoy these types of seaweed but the recipes are lame.
    “Ingredients & Instructions:

    – 4 cups of water over low heat
    – 8 inch kombu cut in half
    – Soak kombu in water for 30 minutes”

    And then what?? Just chew on it??
    I also suggest shopping at your local Asian market. I went to Whole Foods and the price difference in the seaweeds was incredible. The Asian market was very reasonable. Even Miso paste was a difference of 10.50 at WF versus 4.99 at the Asian market for the same product.
