Thursday’s Side Dish: Hot Seaweed Nori

A healthy snack in a pinch 

Remember the big sheets of dried seaweed that we’ve used for sushi rolls? The Mixed Stew crew picked up a hefty package of Happy brand Ajitsuke Nori. Each large package contains 100 smaller packets of (5 inch) dried nori strips. Prices should range between $8.00 and $12.00 so shop around. Expect a spicy kick in every bite of the seasoned seaweed. The mini portions are convenient for topping savory appetizers, such as deviled eggs or individual bowls of soup. Garnish scoops of hot steamed rice with this food item for a change. Also, throw two or three packets into your packed lunches. Eat is by itself to get as an ocean-flavored snack. Dried nori is a very healthy alternative to bags of potato chips or pretzels since they’re low on carbs. Nori contains vitamin B-12, which is essential in promoting better cognitive function.
