Okay, I know you all didn't sign on to go with every single new recipe I find. But this is incredible. It's weird to invent something and call it good; it sounds conceited. Apparently I'd make a lousy Heidi Swanson ;)

Wakame is a seaweed plant. In the package, dried, it is a hard, leathery substance that is more black than green. If you pop a piece in your mouth, it's salty and rich, probably the definition of umame. Apparently it's a good source of B vitamins, folate, iron. I need to find a cheap source of this, because it would be excellent to keep on hand.

I tend to go a little nuts when exposed to exotic Asian items, if you haven't noticed. They are a serious weakness, whether we're talking soup spoons or sweets or something like uncommon soy sauce. If you can find (and afford, omg) black garlic ($8.99 for two cloves at Whole Foods) and wakame (also WF, around $7), try this out. You end up with a complex, rich soup full of smooth, soft noodles and a tangy, savory, slightly sweet broth.

NOM. NOM ON THE SOUP. YOU WISH YOU WERE AS GQ AS THIS SOUP.
