Recipe to Cleanse

Ocean Veggie Stir Fry
1–2 tablespoons sesame or olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
1 cup root vegetables (carrots, parsnips, winter squash, burdock), julienned or sliced thin
1/2 cups arame or hijiki seaweed, soaked for 20 minutes
1/3 cup apple juice
1/2 cup corn kernels, frozen
1/2 cup other vegetables (such as broccoli, snow peas, string beans), chopped
1 tablespoon soy sauce

1.In a medium to large frying pan, heat oil over medium heat, and sauté onion for 1 minute. Add root vegetables, and cook for 3 to 6 minutes.
2.Place seaweed in the frying pan with apple juice and just enough water to cover. Cover, lower heat, and let simmer for 20 minutes. You may need to check on the liquid level and adjust.
3.Uncover, and add remaining vegetables and soy sauce. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes until water evaporates.


  1. Seaweed? Have you actually ate this? Just curious. My attempts at seaweed have previously been less than thrilling.

  2. I have not eaten seaweed but have heard it is quite distasteful. Many people buy it from the Food Coop and eat it raw. I believe it helps with energy and memory. Next time I have the opportunity to eat it, I will certainly try ;o)
