It looks a lot like bacon . . . and it tastes like it, too! Researchers at the Oregon State University have bred a strain of a seaweed called dulse that tastes strongly of bacon. Dulse is very nutritious and is a popular if expensive health food. But now its appeal can spread even further. Live Science quotes lead researcher Chris Langdon:

"In Europe, they add the powder to smoothies, or add flakes onto food," Langdon said. "There hasn't been a lot of interest in using it in a fresh form. But this stuff is pretty amazing. When you fry it, which I have done, it tastes like bacon, not seaweed. And it's a pretty strong bacon flavor."
