Buying Tips

Wakame and alaria are mostly found in natural food stores or specialty markets.

Varieties

A sea vegetable closely related to wakame is alaria (Alaria esculenta); it is common to Atlantic waters. Black or dark green in color, alaria is similar to wakame in appearance, taste, and nutrition, but needs a longer cooking time than wakame. Alaria is good in stews and grain dishes. It can also be used in miso soup instead of the traditional wakame.
