Wakame Seaweed and Vegetable Rice

Wakame seaweed, also known as Sea Mustard, is deep green and is often found in miso soup. It tastes subtly sweet and has a silky-smooth texture. It has often been reported to be packed with a number of micro-nutrients namely Iodine. This presentation of rice works well as a standalone meal or is equally as great as a side dish.
