Kombu and kelp are both names for brown seaweed. Kombu is particularly popular in Japanese cooking, and lead to the discovery of umami. Learn more about umami.

What Mara fans say about Kombu

“The most versatile is the lovely Kombu. I found it added a richness to soup, without giving an overpowering flavour."

Lynsey
"I've used Mara Kombu in spaghetti sauces and soups instead of sea salt. The flavour is amazing and in some dishes I don't use salt anymore."
Gilly

How do I enjoy Kombu Kelp Strips?

Use Kombu Kelp Strips during cooking, and take out before serving. Think of them as the stock cubes of the sea. Whether you’re making traditional lentil soup or dashi stock for ramen, kelp is a fantastic natural flavour enhancer.

A strip of Kombu will soften grains and pulses, and give stews and sauces body. Try it when soaking dried beans for an unbeatable depth of flavour.
