This seaweed soup is one of my daughter's three favourite foods--she adores the stuff and puts untold quantities away. I have an ability, strange as it may sound, to 'make' myself like a food, and this I've managed so that we can enjoy it together. It's usually cooked with some kind of protein source--often beef--so as I don't eat land-meat, my wife has cooked up a batch with abalone.
This kind of seaweed (Wakame or 'Sea mustard') has a host of health benefits already; coupled with abalone, which is also bursting with nutrients, and swimming in garlic, I can think of few dishes that are better for you (sodium is high, but I'm not eating it every day). Plus, Wakame is an invasive species that spreads like crazy, so there's no shortage of the stuff.
The taste is hard to describe: it's very rich and strong, but with a hint of sweetness about it--and the garlic and oil means that you feel a little as if you've just had a satisfying Italian dish once the bowl is empty.
This is pretty close to the version my wife makes:
It has a cultural place in Korea, too, being associated with birth and motherhood. Pregnant women often incorporate it into their diets, and it is very commonly eaten at post-maternity hospitals by new mothers who are recovering. As a result of this, it has an association with birth and is traditionally eaten on one's birthday.

My mistake, its South Australia not NZ, it pretty dangerous as the abalone are found in areas frequented by great whites, one of the guys brother was killed by a shark and another has huge scars over his head and face where a shark bit him.
That's along the lines of what I was thinking and there is a local ALDI.I would recommend... 'ALCAFE, 4 Italian Blend from ALDI - 100% Arabica Ground Coffee. close to £3.00 for 227g.
Oh good grief, yes!Cap Columbie' was my fave for a long time - A nice robust, nutty...
Im guessing it wasnt an 'elephants leg' varietyHad lamb kebab for dinner in a restaurant. It was just as good as I remember it was the last time I had the opportunity to visit the restaurant.
