    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.

    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 tablespoon dried basil
    • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
    • 3/4 cup buttermilk

    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.
