Can I eat Kelp?

    Yes you sure can. It is high in a lot of minerals, and apparently has a pretty salty taste.

    Yep, some suggest mixing it with your rice, putting it in miso soup, or baking it at 200 degrees until crisp and crumbling it over salads or pasta! There are also more recipes for making kelp salsa and relish here, to pack in those nutrients. Kelp is a good source of iodine, a nice antioxidant, and the seaweed can apparently help flush wastes and toxins from your body.

    You definitely can. Kelp is a staple food in the Japanese diet, and is a huge store of the “umami” taste common to Japanese food. It has a very strong salty flavor comparable to brine, and very well compliments the tangy sweetness of sushi rice, hence its prevalence in sushis. 

    Kelp (commonly called seaweed) is also available in dried sheets that some people eat like crackers.

    One of my favorite ways to eat it is in a seaweed salad with sesame seeds and some pickled ginger.
