Swap a plate of pasta for a sustainable plate of seaweed tagliatelle instead with I Sea Pasta.
I Sea Pasta looks like tagliatelle but is in fact 100% wild, handpicked seaweed from Connemara, Ireland.
Seaweed is a key sustainable food source. It is plentiful and does not need extra water, fertiliser or pesticides.
I Sea Pasta can either be soaked in hot water or boiled. I chose to boil I Sea Pasta and whilst cooking, there was a distinctive sea aroma. The final product in spite of the scent whilst cooking did not have a fish-like taste.
The first thing that my senses picked up on whilst eating I Sea Pasta was the chewy and slight rubbery texture, which was akin to squid. The seaweed taste was ever so subtle, in spite of me teaming up I Sea Pasta with a homemade neopolitan sauce with lots of fresh garlic.
I Sea Pasta is not something I would chose to replace a bowl of pasta with on a regular basis, but it is definitely a great way to get your vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and sustainably at that, if that is what you desire.
I Sea Pasta is available from Whole Foods or online
