So, what is kombu?

Kombu is a type of edible kelp that is commonly used in Japanese cuisine. It is a rich source of umami flavor and is often used as a natural flavor enhancer in soups, stews, and other savory dishes. Kombu is also packed with essential vitamins and minerals, including iodine, calcium, and iron, making it a healthy addition to any diet. It is typically sold dried, and before use, it is usually soaked in water to rehydrate and soften. Kombu is known for its unique texture, which is both chewy and slightly slippery, making it a favorite ingredient among food enthusiasts.
