Zucchini Kelp Noodles

Kelp noodles are a fantastic ingredient for pasta lovers! Have you heard of these slippery noodles that look like Asian glass noodles?

Kelp noodles are a raw sea vegetable and consist only of kelp algae (brown seaweed), sodium alginate (sodium salt from a brown seaweed) and water. They have hardly any calories (100 g/5 kcal), are gluten-free and contain minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron and iodine.

Thus, kelp noodles are definitely a healthy alternative to classic noodles and since they’re very neutral in flavor, they taste great with sauces of all kinds.

Here we present Zucchini Kelp Noodles in 3 variations.


for 4 servings


  • 1 package kelp noodles (300g)
  • 1 zucchini
  • 2 carrots
  • 4 radishes
  • 1 handful peas (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 handful basil
  • 1 tablespoon black sesame seeds


  • 1 tablespoon apple mustard
  • 1 tablespoon miso
  • 1 tablespoon tahin
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • ½ cup of water


  • If frozen, remove peas from freezer and let thaw. Soak kelp noodles in water for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  • Briefly rinse and drain kelp noodles.
  • Process zucchini into spaghetti using a spiralizer, finely slice carrots and radishes.
  • Put everything together in a bowl.
  • For the sauce, puree all ingredients in a blender.
  • Fold sauce into noodles and sprinkle with basil and sesame seeds.

The visually slimy kelp noodles taste rather crispy when freshly prepared, but become soft when soaked in the sauce 🙂

The recipe is wonderful for variations. Depending on the season and your taste preferences, you can develop your own creations.
