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."

"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."

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.

    I soaked the kombu Kelp strips in some purified water for and hour then slowly brought them up to a simmer, without boiling. I removed them at that point and set them aside while preparing other ingredients. I used some shrimp I had frozen over the summer, some onion, cilantro, salt, pepper and some of the other seaweed flakes. I boiled some rice noodles and soft boiled some eggs. Putting it all together I added my shrimp last and cut the Kombu into strips along with some chopped fresh spinach. Noodles in the bowl, followed by half a gooey egg, topped with toasted sesame seeds, Tamari and a little sesame oil. I really enjoyed using the Kombu strips!!!My thyroid is happy.

    Great products, great customer service

    Kelp strips are yet another great way of using seaweed to flavour my recipes.

    I also bought a further supply of the other kinds of seaweed which Mara sell.

    Ordering from website was straightforward . The parcel arrived promptly, was well packaged using recyclable materials.
