Prep: 10 mins
Additional: 1 hr 10 mins
Cook: 5 mins
Total: 1 hr 25 mins


  • 1.7 oz dried wakame seaweed
  • 3 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar

  5. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  6. When ready to serve, garnish with extra sesame seeds. Enjoy!
