Marine Rice

(Recipe from the book "Viatge nutritiu“ Isabel Celma and Montse L. Tolosana. Montflorit Ed. 1st Catalan edition: April 2005)


  • 2 large cups of brown rice
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1 onion
  • ½ green pepper
  • ½ red pepper
  • 8 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tomatoes grated and mature
  • 2 good handfuls of seaweed cochayuyo
  • 2 tablespoons of seaweed iziki well filled
  • Olive oil
  • saffron (optional)


  1. In a large earthenware casserole or paella, put some oil and stir-fry the onion cut fine, the whole garlic cloves (with skin or can be peeled), and peppers cut into Small, thin strips. When it begins to be golden, add the seaweed cochayuyo and stir well after the grated tomato. Cook it a little. We will put the two large cups of rice, mix everything and then add four cups of water at room temperature. Leave covered at low heat. When water boils, add the seaweed iziki. Cook with the pan uncovered. If we like paella style, let it cook until it evaporates the water, whether we like more a little Rissotto, then we boil while stirring slowly and put out the fire before the end of the broth. In the two cases, let stand covered a few minutes. If we decide to put saffron, which gives an excellent taste, then we will do so in the last moments of cooking, we can also add chopped parsley.

Couscous with vegetables and cochayuyo 


  • 250g of couscous
  • 40 g of cochayuyo
  • 4 artichokes
  • 4 large sprouts of cauliflower or broccoli
  • 1 onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 cup of cooked chickpeas
  • 1 cup grated of tomatoes
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • herbs
  • pepper


  1. Wash the cochayuyo and leave aside while preparing vegetables. Peel and cut the artichokes, cut the carrot, zucchini and bell pepper to diced, cauliflower or broccoli with small twigs. Cut the onion fine and put in a sauté pan with oil, put cochayuyo along with some herb (thyme, oregano, basil ...) and a pinch of pepper. For the ten minutes add the remaining vegetables and cook. Add the cup of chickpeas and tomatoes, cook about five minutes together. Add a little liquid (broth with vegetables, tomato juice, water...) if necessary.
  2. Meanwhile, in a skillet, heat roast couscous very soft with a couple of whole garlic, for 5-10 minutes, stirring constantly to avoid scorching.
  3. Put in a pot to boil the same volume of stock that we have used in couscous. Remove from heat the couscous and pour the broth over, let it stand until all liquid is absorbed. C
  4. We can mix in the casserole and let stand a little. In this way couscous takes the flavor of the stew.

Where is this seaweed from? Do you have any information about it's nutritional value? I'm always super excited to see how new foods stack up regarding their vitamins, minerals, nutrients, etc. And I'm super glad you included a couscous recipe. That is one of my favorite dishes! I'll definitely give it a try!

All people agree that the seaweed is one of the most rare ingredients in the earth, I mean, they have so many benefits even though they barely receive the sunlight, and maybe that is the thing that makes them so good and healthy, perfect when following the proper diet for sure¡
