Quick Healthy Snack Cheap – Oven-Toasted Nori

nori (2)

They sell all these "seasoned nori snacks" in health-food stores but a) they're way overpackaged, and b) none have a hechsher. And now, I can add reason c) - mine taste way better!  (I’m assuming, not having tasted the packaged ones)

I admit, they don’t look like much, strewn on a plate like this… but believe me, these pack a mighty tasty punch.  And I just bought two packages of nori for $1.99 so at that price, we can afford to eat these to our hearts’ content!

How to make them:

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. In a bowl, mix some combination of sriracha, tasty soy sauce, sesame oil, and a bit of water. 
  3. Brush on one sheet of nori.  Stick another sheet of nori on top and brush with more mixture.
  4. Using kitchen shears (I wouldn’t want to do this with a knife), slice into thin strips or any shape you want.
  5. Bake 5 minutes or less, checking often so they don’t burn (remove when curled).

p.s. if I had any in the house, I probably would have pressed some sesame seeds on top just to top them off… play around with this; as with most of my recipes, it’s more of a concept than a specific set of instructions.
