Preparation Time: 30 Minutes
Cooking Time: 40 Minutes
● 30 gr of dried Wakame seaweed (i`ve used AlgaPlus seaweed – see tips)
● 3 garlic cloves (chopped)
● 3 average sized potatoes (peeled and cut in halves)
● 1 large leek (chopped in rings)
● ½ tsp of ginger powder
● ½ tsp curcuma powder
● ¼ tsp black pepper
● 1/2 tsp Sea salt (Fleur de sel mix with macro seaweeds, AlgaPlus®)
● 25 ml of olive oil
Soak the wakame seaweed for 30 minutes and wash it once more after that, to remove most of the salty taste and any debris.
In a medium heat pan, add 800 ml of water. Add all the vegetables/tuber now. Let it boil and cook.
Use a hand blender once fully cooked. Add then the spices, seaweed and salt and let it cook in a low heat for 20 minutes. Add the olive oil last.
Serve while its hot. It´s a surprisingly creamy soup because of the seaweed texture.
