On the cutting edge of food and sustainability, seaweed and sea vegetables are good both for you and – with the potential to drastically reduce our carbon footprint – for the planet. Ocean Greens is the all-in-one guide to the most kitchen-ready varieties of this remarkable food – wakame, kombu, agar, samphire, nori, and many others. Authors Lisette Kreischer and Marcel Schuttelaar share insights on the nutrition, taste, and harvesting of each, as well as 50 vegan recipes.
