Spirulina Wedges

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.


Spirulina Wedges

  • 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).
