Seed snacks are already nutritious and packed with dietary fibre, protein, healthy fats and many antioxidants. Combined with seaweed, their nutritional value is multiplied and their digestibility improved. Make a batch and store for use as a healthy snack.
Making nori chips couldn’t be easier. You need a few simple ingredients:
A few nori seaweed sheets: You can find these in Asian food stores or even online
Sesame oil: Use sesame oil for its rich, nutty flavor, but extra virgin olive oil works well too.
Toppings: Here, you can pretty much use your imagination. Adding sesame seeds on top of nori chips, a sprinkle of extra dried seaweeds, and a touch of dried chili. But feel free to use any spices or herbs like smoked paprika, garam masala, dried oregano, garlic powder, nutritional yeast, or a touch of sea salt.
So, roasted seaweed is almost pure, with only a few extra ingredients added to make it crunchy. And that makes it an excellent alternative to potato chips as a snack, for example.
