And in the continuing adventures of the crew of the starship seaweed...
Well, it smells of kelp. In fact, it smells like the beach when the tide's just gone out. Want to know what that smell is; drying seaweed... Now you know.
Photos later of the concoction I made. It was hard to tell what it tasted of given it was served with water chestnuts and smoked tofu. However, it seemed vaguely salty with a mineral tang and a general rubbery/leafy texture.
Now I just have to survive the night. I did prepare it and the mung bean sprouts entirely correctly bar a concern over the difference between a brief rinse and a careful rinse.
