Nori Chips- makes a lot!

1 package of toasted nori sheets

1/2c. canola oil or coconut oil

1/2c. agave nectar

Gomashio, you can use any kind of spice mixture you want (nutmeg and cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, mexican spices)

Directions:

1. Mix the oil and agave together and set aside. Preheat the oven to 350. Line two baking sheets with parchment and set aside.

2. Stack three sheets of nori and fold into thirds and press down, unfold and cut down the creases. Stack the three long sheets on top of each other and cut in half. Continue this for the whole package.

3. Once you have all the nori cut, place the individual strips on the lined baking sheets, using a pastry brush coat the top of each strip with the oil and agave mixture and sprinkle with the gomashio or which ever spices you choose. You will have a few batches of these so make sure to mix the oil and agave regularly because it will separate. When the baking sheets are ready place in the oven and bake for 5-7 minutes, (I like 5-6 minutes, they burn easily).

4. When those minutes are up take the chips out of the oven, flip and repeat with the oil and agave mixture and your spices on the other side. Put back in the oven for another 5 minutes. (You are going to have to use your best judgement on if they are done, I like mine crispy BUT NOT BURNED). Repeat until all of the ingredients are used up. Let the chips cool completely and then store in an airtight container.

Nutrition:

Nori- Similar benefits to those of kelp, has the highest mineral content of all sea vegetables. Particularly helpful in lowering cholesterol and blood pressure and for breaking down and flushing away cysts and mucus.

Sea Vegetables- Sea vegetables offer super-rich and easily absorbable source of minerals and vitamins, including iron, calcium, vitamin B, vitamin A, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, iodine, zinc, selenium and copper! Sea vegetables are highly alkaline forming and help reduce tumors and masses and bind to radioactive substances and heavy metals to pull them from our bodies. The most  widely used are kombu/kelp (you may have seen this  called for in many of my recipes), nori, arame and dulse. (Courtesy of ‘Clean Food’ by Terry Walters)

Love:

Love this funky treat! You can find these in the grocery store but homemade ones are way better. I have been making these for quite sometime but finally got some good pics so I could share with y’all. I make these so that Mr. Bill-y won’t be tempted to bring home a bag of Lay’s Potato Chips (not that those aren’t good but when you are working on getting your sexy back they just don’t fit into the eating for health plan). I promise these Nori Chips are good, funky- but good! Enjoy! (recipe was adapted from one of my favorite cookbooks ‘Clean Food’ by Terry Walters)
