Easy Seaweed Soup is nutritious and simple to make. It is particularly convenient when we're looking for a quick dish. Korean roasted seaweed, well-known for its delicious flavor, can be used. 


  • 3 sheets roasted seaweed (about 7” x 10” in size)
  • 1 cup vegetarian broth + 1 cup water (or 2 cups water + 1 teaspoon vegetarian seasoning mix)
  • 3 or 4 fresh coriander leaves (cilantro), finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Maggi seasoning sauce and ground black pepper, to taste



  1. Put vegetarian broth in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Fold the seaweed and break into smaller pieces; put in the boiling water.
  3. Reduce heat; cook for 5 minutes until the seaweed expands and the soup consistency thickens.
  4. Add sesame oil.
  5. Remove from heat. Pour the soup into a bowl and sprinkle cilantro on top for garnish.
  6. Serve hot. Add a little Maggi seasoning sauce and ground black pepper to taste (optional).

Seaweed: Grown and harvested from the ocean, seaweed is rich in many nutrients. By weight, it contains more calcium and iron than dairy products. It also provides other valuable minerals and is thought to have cancer-fighting benefits.

Sesame: Cultivated for nearly 6000 years, sesame has been highly valued throughout history because it provides high energy and slows the aging process. Modern research has also found that sesame oil contains substances that decrease cholesterol levels in the blood, thereby lowering blood pressure and protecting the heart.

Cilantro: Also known as coriander, this delicate green plant cleanses the bloodstream by removing potentially harmful substances. It also stimulates the appetite and aids digestion.
