Cook’s Tips

  • Dulse is a type of sea vegetable (red algae) that is high in vitamins and minerals, including iodine, magnesium and zinc and it adds an umami flavour boost.
  • You can leave this pesto in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Serve the pesto over eggs, stirred through noodles or combine with yoghurt or sour cream to make a dip – it’s so versatile.
