    These are American-style biscuits, which means they resemble scones and are meant to be eaten with soup or stew like dumplings. You can usually find kelp powder at health food shops.

    Ingredients
    Makes: 12 biscuits

    • 2 cups plain flour
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • pinch salt
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons white sugar
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons thyme
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons savoury
    • 1 teaspoon powdered kelp
    • 1 tablespoon dried parsley

    1. Preheat oven to 230 degrees C.
    2. Sift all dry ingredients, including spices, into a mixing bowl. Lightly toss with a fork to mix, then rub in the butter until it forms pea-sized pieces.
    3. Slowly drizzle in the buttermilk while lightly tossing the mix with a fork. Stir until all the ingredients are moistened, but don't over mix.
    4. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead 4-5 times or until it just comes together. Pat it down into a circle about 2cm thick and cut into biscuits with a 5cm round cutter.
    5. Place biscuits on a baking tray and bake 8 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with soup or stew.
