Toasted Seaweed Chips

I was doing a bit of shopping after school a few months back and even though they’d had afternoon tea, my kids were moaning that they were still hungry. My kids tend to do this every time we’re shopping and they spot something they fancy. This time they’d spied some Nori Chips and seeing as they love nori and they love chips, they worked out that these might be worth a try!

I of course checked out the ingredients, not happy with the vegetable oil (sunflower or canola I think), but otherwise okay, I conceded because I actually wanted to try them myself. So they were inhaled within seconds of opening and didn’t put a dent on their hunger (note to self to insist on buying nuts next time) and as delicious as they were, they were quite expensive.

So off to the kitchen I head on a mission to re-create my kids latest obsession with toasted seaweed chips. The delicious result I share with you today.

Ingredients
Yaki nori sheets (for sushi)*
1 tablespoon of tamari or aminos (liquid or coconut)
1 tablespoon of sesame oil
Optional toppings (sesame seeds, nutritional yeast)

*Available in the Asian food section of the supermarket or health food stores

Method

  1. Preheat a fan forced oven to 150℃/ 300℉.
  2. Mix your tamari and sesame oil together in a small bowl.
  3. Brush the shiny side of the nori sheet with the oil/tamari mix (right to the edges), sprinkle with optional toppings and place another sheet, rough side down on top. Repeat with two -three more sheets (to make a stack of three to four sheets).
  4. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper and place another piece of baking paper on top. I weighed it down with another baking tray (filled with pastry weights). You don’t have to weigh it down, it just stops the sheets curling (but doesn’t effect the taste).
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes until crisp at the edges.
  6. Cut with a large sharp knife (you can pry into single sheets or leave as a stack) and enjoy immediately or store in a small airtight container.
  7. These are very sensitive to humidity, so I always add the moisture absorber from the packet of nori to my container or they will loose their crispiness.

I packed these in my kids school lunch and they lost their crunch, mind you it was 100% humidity here at the time. So these are an after school or weekend snack for now.

    sounds yum! So do you bake them in a stack of 10 all weighted down or weigh down several baking trays?

    • Kelly I for this recipe I baked in small stacks of 3/4 (but I have a large oven). When I made these at my mums a while ago I baked them in a stack of 10, they worked fine, just took 10 minutes longer to crisp G x

  • I’m going to try this after work! What a quick & easy snack with ingredients I always have handy. Thanks! L x

  • Trevanna Lang

    I would love to make these. Just a little confused with the number of nori sheets. Is it a total stack of 3 or 5? The recipe says ten sheets needed but the method says total stack of 3.

    • Sorry Trevanna, I have just reworded it, hopefully clearer (it’s a simple recipe but really hard to explain the method). Personally I stack 3-4 sheets on one baking tray. But I do use all ten sheets in the pack, baked on three trays each time I make them. But how many you make is up to you. G x

  • Rachael

    What are some other toppings I can put on here.

  • The limit is your imagination really – we like sesame seeds, nutritional yeast, herbs, spices (smokey paprika or garam masala is yum) G x

    Oh my goodness these are so addictive!!!!! LOVE them!

Kind words…

“I downloaded your ebooks after hearing you speak at the Health and Wellness Summit in Melbourne. Love them, life changing… Don’t stop! Thank you for getting the whole food message out there, I certainly heard it.” Melanie

“I love your ebooks, I have all three of them now and they are now my only go to receipe books. They are simple, wholesome and taste great. THANK YOU!!! I have spent alot of money on courses about healthy eating and recipe books but your books have covered it all and my little man enjoys the snacks etc. Wish I would have found you earlier “. Brooke

“I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing website and information. I’ve never liked cooking and never got excited by my ‘healthy’ cooking. My husband is even worse and if he could, he would just eat beacon and eggs every morning and steak every night. He hardly ate any veggies. Since I found your website I have gone through almost every recipe. My husband is loving every meal as well – even meat free Monday, and he’s taking left-overs to work for lunch (honestly, who thought that could be so hard?!)” Rose

This page has become my little bible hehe! Thank you so much for all the detail you give. It’s absolutely wonderful!” Sky
