If you’re on your way to eating a healthy diet, you should definitely include frozen spirulina in your everyday meals. Spirulina is high in essential nutrients, such as calcium, potassium, niacin, B vitamins, magnesium, and iron.
Live, fresh, frozen Spirulina is both taste and aroma neutral and therefore; it can be incorporated into just about any recipe. Here are a few we love!
1. Spirulina Pudding
If you have a sweet tooth, this is one of the best spirulina dishes. You can easily combine different ingredients, such as vanilla and cinnamon, to make a slightly sweet pudding that you can eat for dessert. Or, you can combine these ingredients in a blender to make a smoothie bowl.
Here are the ingredients you need:
- 1 ounce of frozen spirulina
- Tablespoon of chia seeds
- Ground cinnamon to your liking
- 1/3 cup milk of your choice
- Teaspoon vanilla extract
- Sweetener of your choice (agave, honey, etc.)
Simply mix the ingredients or combine them in a blender. Serve in a bowl with a topping of your choice. We recommend chia seeds and your favorite fresh fruit.
2. Spirulina Salad Dressing
A hack when cooking with spirulina is it likes fat. Healthy fats should be part of your daily diet. That’s why you should combine frozen spirulina with olive oil as much as you can, especially when you use it as a topping or dressing.
You can make a very simple spirulina salad dressing by mixing one packet of frozen spirulina with equal parts olive oil and fresh lemon juice. Finish with salt and pepper to your liking. You can mix the spirulina with water before adding it to the vinaigrette, to ensure it’s properly combined.
3. Spirulina and Fish Toast
You can make a simple appetizer for your family and friends with spirulina!
Start by mixing a one ounce packet of frozen spirulina with sour cream, softened butter, or softened cream cheese. Spread over toast. Add a piece of your choice of fish (salmon is our pick!) and finish off the toast with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a pinch of salt.
4. Dress up Rice
Do you love eating rice but hate eating rice plain? If so, you can add frozen spirulina to white or brown rice that’s perfect to use in homemade sushi, your favorite curry, classic rice and beans, a soup, your favorite bowl, or to just eat as a side dish.
The only issue with eating spirulina in this recipe is spirulina loses nutritional value when heated. Only add the spirulina before serving.
To make the rice, start by cooking rice to packet instructions. Prepare the rest of the recipe normally. If you’re eating the rice alone, add your favorite seasonings. We recommend red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, and sesame seeds.
You have two options when mixing the spirulina — combine spirulina in cold water and add it to your recipes (the ideal option for soups and curries). Serve and Enjoy!
