✅ Sesame seeds and chopped nuts, for garnish



✔️ In a medium bowl, add the lemon juice and baking soda and mix together while it’s fizzing.
✔️ Add the kelp noodles and massage using your hands until the noodles start to soften (about one minute). Set aside for 5 minutes. Then rinse the noodles in cold water for 2 full minutes. (It’s very important to rinse them completely to remove the salty flavor.)

✔️ Sprinkle with sesame seeds and chopped nuts, serve, and enjoy!
