A Recipe for Hypothyroidism - Kelp Fruit Salad
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes Yield: 4 servings
Nutrition Facts: Kelp is one of the few foods that is loaded with Iodine. It also contains lots of fiber, calcium, and protein. It is very low in calories, so a wonderful choice for losing weight.
Dried shredded kelp or wakame: 1 cup
This can be found in any Asian grocery market, and the package looks like the picture above.
Cucumber: 1. Shred it or slice it. Get rid of excessive water
Balsamic vinegar or Chinese dark color vinegar: 1 tbsp
Extra olive oil (EVOO): 1 tbsp
Garlic: 2-4 cloves, pressed with a garlic press
Sesame oil: 0.5 tbsp. It can be found at any Asian store.
Cilantro: cut into small pieces, 1 tbsp
Green Onion: 1, cut into short pieces
Chili oil: 1 tsp.
Sea salt or pink salt
Roasted sesame seeds: ½ tbsp
A small amount of cherry tomatoes, blueberries, or strawberries
Soak dried kelp in water for 30 minutes to one hour until it completely softens.
Rinse the kelp well and then boil it at medium to low heat for 30 minutes. Then completely drain the water out. I recommend you cook a large amount of kelp at one time and then store it in the refrigerator. It will stay fresh for at least a week.
Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Then sprinkle sesame seeds on the top.
