About

Simple, quick, light and delicious. Kelp noodles are really fun, but you have to know how to use them, or they seem too rubbery. Soak them in water with a little lemon juice and see how soft they become. Their neutral flavor, gently accompanies whatever dressing or marinade you choose. Sometimes I'll mix them with spiralized zucchini to add more texture.
