Fun facts

Health benefits of Kombu the seaweed:

*Kombu is a low calorie, nutrient dense food. One seven-inch piece of kombu contains roughly 10 calories, 0 grams fat, 0 grams cholesterol, 180 milligrams (mg) sodium, 340 mg potassium, 2 grams carbohydrate, 2 grams fiber, 4 percent calcium, and 12 percent magnesium. It also contains vitamin C, A, E, K, B-vitamins, iodine, iron, manganese, and copper.

* Iodine is a critical component of thyroid hormones. It is also important in brain development and, therefore, an important nutrient for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

* A diet rich in fiber has been associated with a healthier weight, better blood sugar control, and decreased risk of cardiovascular disease. Seaweed contains dietary fiber, mostly soluble, which may help lower cholesterol and increases feelings of fullness.

* Certainly, before consuming algae you should check the quality. Numami Seaweed algae are cultivated in a controlled environment and dry-freezed, thus preserving all the necessary vitamins and minerals.

Recipe for 8 sandwiches



1 jar of canned chickpeas

2 celery stems

2 tablespoons Numami Kombu algae (you can buy algae from here)

1 onion

1 tablespoon mustard

1 tablespoon vegetable yogurt

1 tablespoon lemon juice

5 g dill

1 teaspoon of garlic seasoning

1 teaspoon of black salt


8 tablespoons sweet relish

3 handfuls of arugula (or salad mix)

some cherry tomatoes


16 wholewheat bread


Wash and clean celery and onion. Take the food processor and add the celery and onion into it. Blend about 1 minute. Wash and drain chickpeas. Add into the food processor chickpeas, dill, mustard, yogurt, and all the spices. Pulse about 10-15 times, but not more than 20 seconds. Take a bowl and put the spread inside. Add the Kombu algae on top of the spread. Then mix well with a spoon.

To make one sandwich, take 2 slices of wholewheat bread. Heat the pan on the stove with a little oil and then place the bread slices on the pan. Fry on both sides for 2-3 minutes. If you have a toaster you can toast the bread in there. Then place one slice of toast on a plate, place two spoons of spread on the bread. Spread it over the toast and then add the arugula, sweet relish, and tomato. Place another slice of bread on top. Cut the sandwich with a knife in half and enjoy it. Bon Appetit!
