Pasta with seaweed and herbs

Ingredients
  • 300g spaghetti
  • 100g seaweed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 100g wild herbs, including ramson, sweet cicely, watercress, marsh samphire.
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of black pepper
What parts of the plant to use
  • The entire algae. If you are using bladderwrack, cut away the stems. The stems can add a strange slimy texture to the dish, which can be avoided this way.
Directions
  1. Fill a large pot with water, add a small handful of salt, and bring it to the boil.
  2. Cook the spaghetti according to the instructions on the packaging
  3. While the pasta is cooking, cut the seaweed into strips roughly the same size as the pasta
  4. Chop the garlic finely.
  5. In another pot, heat oil and butter. Sauté the seaweed and garlic. They should become a bit transparent.
  6. When the pasta is done cooking, drain the pasta and add it to the pan with seaweed and garlic.
  7. Mix well with salt and pepper.
  8. Chop the herbs and sprinkle over the pasta.
  9. Serve immediately.
  • Tips

    This recipe is a good way to introduce seaweed into your kitchen. Seaweed can be used in various ways, and sautéing it before use makes it a bit more palatable for those who are sceptical.
