Vermicelli In Wakame Soup

Wakame is a kelp and looks and taste like spinach lasagna. Study shows Wakame content is rich in protein, calcium, iodine, magnesium, iron and dietary fiber. Research showed that Wakame kelp can help reduce risks of Breast Cancer, Hypertension and Diabetics. Wow...lotz of goodness in this wakame kelp.

Vermicelli is one comfort food when one is not well or when one wants something light for dinner, breakfast or even supper. I love it either in soup or as fried vermicelli. Last nite, we both decided to have something light for dinner and so I cooked wakame soup to go with the vermicelli. Added carrots and eggs into the soup.... a delicious bowl of yummilicious-ness!
