Sounds wonderful Melanie! Yes, I'm glad you adjusted this recipe to suit your own taste.
I consider every recipe a Jumping Off point. I mostly don't work from recipes & just create
as I go to my personal taste. Glad you enjoyed it! :)

Sure sobizaar, You could leave out the kelp & add a dash or more of salt.
I just used the kelp to get more wonderful sea minerals & iodine which
is so vital.

I never have. But I guess if you want a harder cheese you could do that. Thanks for the idea Marysia!

I made this recipe tonight, and I liked it a lot. I made half the proportions and watered it down a bit to use as a sauce over kelp noodles.. However, I adapted the ingredients a bit. I found I wanted more flavor, so I added 6 cloves of garlic, a bit more kelp and about 3 TBs of dulse. I used a whole container of basil from Trader Joe's for just half the recipe, so I think if I'd made the entire proportion, I would have needed a huge quantity of basil (to suit my taste buds anyways.) I think this is a good basic recipe which can be adapted for various desires. It's very filling and hearty. Thanks for the recipe!!
