Before seeing the error of my ways, I was a meat eater and my dad always comforted my hangover with a bacon sandwich. When I became a vegan overnight I thought I would miss it and funnily enough people always ask me if I miss bacon? For the record I don't, but I think I may have found a healthy, vegan alternative that apparently tastes like bacon - Dulse Seaweed. Read more for health benefits....
It can be added to soups, desserts, bread, chowders and salads or deep fried to make crisps. I will fry it this weekend and see if it really does taste like bacon!
Dulse is very rich in vitamins, particularly vitamin A. It is also an exceptional source of fibre (up to 30% when dried) and is bulking with proteins (up to 35%). It further contains a range of trace elements such as iron, sodium and potassium that are essential for your body’s every day functioning. In fact, there is more iron in 8 gram dried dulse than in a 100 gram sirloin steak! It even has twice the nutritional value of kale
