  • Tip: Karegno Pesto can be made quite chunky and used as a garnish or dressing on vegetables or, it’s also delicious when ground finer in a food processor) and can be turned into a spread Pair it with tomatoes, roast vegetables, feta cheese or just use as a dip for raw vegetables.
  • We believe nori (karengo) should be a pantry staple – it’s a rich source of plant protein (the highest of all seaweeds), and rich in vitamins and nutrients essential for good health.  It’s also extremely versatile in the kitchen because of the different flavours that can be enjoyed, depending on how it’s prepared.  Re-hydrated nori has a flavour similar to that of mild anchovy. When eaten dry (from the bag), it can take more of a mushroom flavour.  If you are roasting it, use a low heat as it’s delicate and easy to burn.  You can buy the leaves (wild harvested or farmed), flakes from Pacific Harvest.
