  1. Soak seaweed in water for two hours until soft.
  2. Drain and rinse well, as dried seaweed can retain a lot of dirt.
  3. Combine all ingredients, including seaweed, in a large pot and bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat and simmer for five minutes to allow all the flavours to come together.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
