My friend Kim has sent me this recipe which is a good heavy metal detox. One of the ingredients in this recipe is dulse. Living in a little village, we don’t even have a health shop let alone a specialty food store. So, I headed to town (read Somerset West) and not one of the three health shops I went to keeps dulse. Dulse is a red alga. Not only is it a good source of vitamins and minerals, it also contains trace elements and is a good source of protein. For people on a vegan diet, this would be essential. This pesto is really amazing in both taste and texture. As it is a heavy metal detox, Kim recommends that you only eat a couple of teaspoons a day. It freezes well so make it when coriander is in season and you will be able to enjoy this pesto all year round.
- process the coriander and oil in blender
- add the garlic, nuts, seeds, lemon juice and dulse and pulse until the mixture makes a paste
- add a pinch of salt to taste and blend again
