I soak the dry seaweed for 20 minutes but it still remains firm. How do I get it soft?

Soaking dry seaweed

Normally, if seaweed such as nori or wakame are soaked for more than 20 minutes, the seaweed disintegrates and sodium and potassium just gets washed away.

If the seaweed is kombu, this stays firm. What you can do is cut the kombu in smaller pieces.

According to the Chinese Accupuncture you cook those big long leaves for about 30min after you washed and rinsed them 2 to 3 times in water. No need to soak them overnight.
