Kombu Nutrition and Recipe

You can make a delicious stock using kombu that can be incorporated into almost anything from soups to beans and more. This recipe is about as simple as it gets too.


  • 4–6 cups water
  • 6-inch piece dried kombu


  1. In a pot on the stove, combine 4–6 cups of water and a 6-inch piece of dried kombu.
  2. Allow this seaweed to soak for about 15–20 minutes, then bring to a simmer, uncovered, over medium heat.
  3. Remove it from the pot, and save it to use in the another dish.

You can use the kombu one or two more times before discarding. To reuse, add to soup or beans, or repeat this process. If you want to take it even further for optimal benefits, combine this with my bone broth recipe for an amazing pot of nutrition! 

Tip: Lightly score this seaweed to release more flavor.
