Lost but not forgotten.
Today, I wanted to share this recipe as part of The 30-Day Reset, but could not find it anywhere. For some reason, it remained stranded on the old blog platform, which is still active, but since I am not a fan of the Google propaganda, I stopped publishing articles, as this is my main platform to share my work with you.
Many a times I have been asked about healthy snacks - The Dos and the Don’t - since there are so many different opinions out there. Should it be a fruit? A ‘healthy’ biscuit? A raw Cocoa Bar or nibs?
Now, with Nutrition on hand, this topic is a lot more relevant; therefore, each season, I will add recipes that can easily be enjoyed as a snack, a treat, or a guilty pleasure – not so guilty though, when it is truly good for you (packed with Protein, Calcium, and Vitamins) and does not impact on your blood sugar levels. Plus, it can be easily and quickly prepared (5-10 min.).
Nori Seaweed Crisps: With a pair of scissors, cut the Nori sheet in half (same as used in sushi-making) then place both halves on top of each other; cut it in half again, lengthwise. Stack the ribbons together, cut them in half across to obtain 8 little rectangles out of each Nori sheet (making it 1 portion, naturally).
Make a mix with a tablespoon of Agave Syrup, a few drops of Ground Nut Oil and your favourite vinegar. With a cooking paintbrush, spread gently the mix on each rectangle. Sprinkle with a seed mix (small seeds are best, such as Sesame, desiccated raw Chia seeds, Linseeds and/or Sunflower seeds). Place at the bottom of the oven - 100˙c for 10-12 minutes. (or 40˙c if you prefer a raw recipe-style - and leave overnight)
Flip each rectangle over and at this stage, you can choose to brush each back of the crisp with more agave syrup and seeds, to give that little extra taste and crunch. Take out of the oven and let to cool. They will dry even further as they cool down, making the ideal crisps, full of essential nutrients such as Iodine, and essential Oils that the seeds contain.
You can also try different recipes, brush with Tahine (mixed with a little water to allow evenly spreading) and sprinkle with fried shallots, or chilli powder, or any of your favourite spices to truly make this delicious and nutritious snack your personal favourite.
