Braggs Sea KelpBeing more of a food-assembler than a food cooker, I rely on easy things to keep my frequent dinners of grain, veggie, and protein interesting. I’m a huge fan of Maine Coast Sea Vegetables‘ shakes–they have a dulse and garlic, a kelp and cayenne, and a three-sea veggie combo. Yum. I find this a great way to slip sea vegetables into my diet (they’re loaded with minerals), especially when I don’t have time for a full-on wakame soak.

My latest discovery on this front is from the same company as Bragg Liquid Aminos–a.k.a. vegan fuel. It’s Bragg Organic Sea Kelp Delight. Instead of being straight-up sea-veg like the others (which I actually like), you barely taste the kelp and instead enjoy the lovely, nourishing flavors of parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme–and lots of other less lyrical but equally delish seasonings.

The result is a secretly fortified, all-organic Mrs. Dash-like shake you can shimmy over any dish you like. Sea vegetables taste salty but have very little sodium. I’m especially loving it on baked garnet yams with a dollop of ghee (clarified butter). Num.

Do you have a favorite seasoning shake? Or make your own?
