Who says seafood has to be of the animal variety, anyway? I like to add sea veggies to my chickpea salad. They are so full of minerals and good taste. We are fortunate to have a sushi chef in our local grocery store, so avocado rolls are always available. Also, for a quick miso soup, I simmer wakame or kombu in water for 10-15 minutes, add white miso, and garnishes (finely grated carrot, chopped scallions, tiny cubes of soft tofu). My 8 year old loves this, too, and it is perfect for upset tummies.
Speaking of upset tummies, how does a vegan get food poisoning, anyway? This has some really unpleasant symptoms, of which I will spare you the details. Fortunately it was only me and not the kids or hubby that got it. I suspect it was takeout from our new Thai place, as it's the only thing that I alone ate. Sad, because I was so happy to have some good Thai available finally! It sure tasted good - maybe I should give them another chance.
