For the Bron Marshall Wild Weeds Event I made Spirulina Wedges.
Spirulina is a blue-green algae (Mmmm, sounds delicious) which grows wild in fresh water ponds.
It’s a bit of a wonder food. As well as being a complete protein it is one of the few plant sources of vitamin B12. In powder form it’s also rather strong smelling. After mixing all the ingredients together I got this green concoction.
I confess to having a back-up lunch in mind in case it tasted as strange as it looked. Fortunately it actually turned out rather yummy. The wedges ended up with a nice savoury crust.
- 3 potatoes cut into thick wedges
- 2 tsp of mixed cajun spices
- 2 tsp of spirulina
- 2 cloves of garlic
- Oil to lightly cover wedges
Mix oil, cajun spices, spirulina and garlic together. Cover wedges evenly with the mixture. Cook at 200 C until done (turn wedges at least once).
