Dulse and Kamut Salad

Dulse and Kamut Salad

by Mar 10, 2019Recipes1 comment

This is a substantial one-meal salad.  Kamut is an ancient nutrient-dense type of wheat that is partnered with the sea vegetable Dulse to create a delicious meal that is fiber-rich and high in minerals and vitamins.  Dulse is mild in flavor and takes on a bacon quality when dry fried.  Enjoy!


1/2 cup of Kamut or barley, short-grain brown rice, spelt or freekeh

1 ounce dried dulse seaweed, rinsed, or nori sheets cut into strips

4 ½ ounces long-stem-broccoli stalks, trimmed

3 Tbsp Sunflower seeds

1 tsp Soy Sauce

3 Spring Onions/Scallions, diagonally sliced

2 ounces of mixed sprouted beans and seeds

4-inch piece of cucumber quartered lengthways, deseeded and cut into large cubes

1 recipe quality Japanese-style Tahini Dressing



Put the Kamut in a saucepan and cover with plenty of water.  Bring to a boil over high heat. Turn the heat to simmer for 15 minutes, part-covered or until tender.  Drain and refresh under cold water.

Meanwhile, soak the dulse in just-boiled water for 2 minutes until tender. Drain and roughly chop.  Set aside.  Steam the broccoli for 2 minutes until just tender; refresh with cold water. Drain and slice the stalks leaving the florets intact.

Put the sunflower seeds in a large dry frying pan over medium heat and toast for 2-3 minutes, tossing the pan occasionally.  Add the soy sauce and stir until the seeds are coated.

Put the kamut in a serving dish with the dulse, broccoli, spring onions, mixed sprouts, and cucumber.  Spoon the dressing over and toss until all is coated.

Serve sprinkled with sunflower seeds.

Tahini Dressing

Combine 4 tsp light soy sauce, 4 Tbsp cold-pressed grapeseed/canola oil or similar light oil, 2 Tbsp tahini and 4 tsp maple syrup.

For a North African-inspired tahini dressing, combine 2 Tsp tahini with 2 Tbsp plain yogurt, 1 small crushed garlic clove, juice ½ lemon, and ½ tsp clear honey or date syrup.
