  • 1 tsp Sesame seeds ground

Key info

  • Prep: 30 mins
  • Cooking time: 10 mins
  • Serves: Four as a side dish
  • Rating: Easy

Instructions

1 Soak dried Hijiki in cold water for 3-4 hours (or follow the instruction on product)

2 Drain well, place in a saucepan and use a high heat to remove the moisture, but be careful not to burn

3 Add Hijiki seasoning* and bring to the boil. Reduce heat then simmer for 15-20 minutes

4 Prepare the ‘DRIED KONYAKU’ as instructed on the packet

5 Blanch or steam Carrots and French beans, drain well

6 Place all the ingredients and seasoning** into a mixing bowl

7 Serve onto 4 plates and sprinkle Toasted Sesame seeds on top.


Tip: Add chopped fresh chilli at FINAL STEP 3, if you would like to add a kick

Any leftover prepared Hijiki can be kept for a week in the fridge so I would recommend you make double or triple this amount. Enjoy with just a bowl of rice.
