Kelp is a quick-growing brown seaweed, popular in Japanese cuisine and packed with fiber, minerals and phytonutrients. As a noodle, it has a neutral, non-fishy flavor and a firm, chewy texture that softens upon soaking. Eating an entire package sets you back only 10 calories! Plus, you’ll won’t get any of the starch or gluten that comes with “regular” pasta. Give kelp noodles a try in this colorful salad, made with shredded veggies, fresh herbs and hemp seeds for added crunch!
