Spirulina is a blue-green algae that is available in powder and tablet form. The kind I use is grown right here on the Big Island of Hawaii in Kailua-Kona. It is a dietary supplement . On the bottle it says " Spirulina Pacifica supports cardiovascular, eye and brain health, boosts immunity and energy. It is the most complete food source in the world with over 100 nutrients, 60% protein content, the highest levels of carotenoids, and high in antioxidants know to promote health and longevity." I just wanted to post this info for those of you who don't know what Spirulina is.
This dish can be served as a vegan main dish and complimented by some carrot sticks, steamed veggies or a nice slice of crusty bread.
