Hijiki is a type of wild edible seaweed that is native to the rocky coastlines around Japan, Korea, and China. Hijiki is a great source of fiber and rich nutrients such as calcium, iron, and magnesium. Cooked hijiki has a sweet, savory, and mushroom-like flavor with notes of mineral and ocean.
Uses: Simmer hijiki in flavorful liquids such as dashi, mirin, and soy sauce until tender. Mix in your favorite add-ons such as edamame, konnyaku, aburaage, and sesame.
