Garlic Kelp Butter Bruschetta

bruschetta-016

There are so many uses for kelp Seasonings which are rich in iodine and therefore a really easy way to eat the ‘Recommended Daily Intake’ (RDI) of this essential nutrient – only a pinch is required.  Kelp seasonings are a positive alternative to salt because they taste salty, yet have less sodium and more of the other minerals & trace elements we need. Make kelp a regular part of your diet by:

  • using kelp seasonings as rubs on meat  – they add flavour and are tenderising
  • using them to cook legumes/beans, they speed up cooking time and improve digestibility
  • using them to make savoury flavoured butters

This recipe uses Garlic Kelp Butter to make a healthy & flavourful bruschetta starter.

To make the Garlic Kelp butter:

Ingredients:

150g unsalted butter
3 tbsp fresh parsley
2 tsp Garlic kelp
2 fresh garlic cloves, crushed
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
(optional: finely chopped chilli pepper to taste)

Method:

Mix all the ingredients together and transfer to a ramekin dish or make into a log. Wrap in paper and refrigerate until needed. The butter is delicious on crostinis, steamed vegetables or as a garnish on fish & seafood.

Tip: Other butter mixtures can be made using different flavour kelp seasoning or different herbs. Try unsalted butter mixed with Chilli Kelp, finely cut preserved lemon and minced fresh thyme or unsalted butter with Lemon Kelp, Sea Lettuce Flakes and finely chopped lemon grass. Develop your own creative mixtures and share them with us!

To make the bruschetta:

Turn the oven to 200 C (grill). Line an biscuit tray with baking paper or paint/spray with olive oil.
