RE: Foods with Iodine

Try using nori sheets to make your own veggie sushi, or add kombu to beans (supposed to help with gas and also makes a nice flavorful broth). Miso soup usually gets wakame.
I also like hijiki and arame, which are similar to one another in size/shape, kind of like shreds or short strings. These are good in soups too, and I also soak them in hot water to soften and add them to mashed chickpeas with chopped low-sodium pickles and a little vegan mayo for a "mock tuna" salad. YUM.
Sometimes I will just eat a sheet of nori as a snack. Or spread some hummus on it for a quick roll-up.
Kelp flakes are also available as a table seasoning.
It doesn't take much of any of these to get your daily iodine. And I really find them delicious. You might try some of the sea vegetable dishes at a Japanese restaurant first, to find which things you like.
Most of the ones I use come from Maine Coast Sea Vegetables: https://www.seaveg.com/shop/ But they are available in many stores in the "Asian" aisle.
