It’s Meatless Monday! (And I have news)

Okay, let’s start with the big stuff. My world famous mushroom tofu scramble is being featured on meatlessmonday.com today. Right now. Pretty cool, huh?

But don’t go over there yet! I have an actual blog post for you. Ready? Here goes…

Move over Kale Chips, there’s a new sheriff in town. And by sheriff, I mean a healthy snack for kids that involves seaweed.

Introducing Toasted Sesame Nori Strips.  Not only do they satisfy the crunchy, salty cravings that we all get, but at the same time they are nutritious and delicious and kids of all ages love them. Nori is high in dietary fiber, magnesium, potassium, riboflavin, vitamin A and vitamin C.

Bet you can’t eat just one.

Toasted Sesame Nori Strips

3 sheets of toasted nori

½ cup canola oil

Cayenne

½ cup brown rice syrup

1 ½ cups sesame seeds

spice of choice( nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice)

Sea salt

Preheat oven to 350.

Stack nori sheets, cut into 2-inch strips, stack again and cut in half.  Cover cookie sheet with parchment paper, and lay individual strips of nori side by side on paper.  In small bowl, whisk together oil, syrup, and a pinch of cayenne.

Using a pastry brush, generously coat the top of each piece of nori with syrup mixture.  Oil and syrup tend to separate, so continue to mix as you work.  When all nori pieces are coated sprinkle with sesame seeds, spice of choice and salt.  Toast in oven 5-7 minutes-keep a close eye as they burn easily.  When seeds are light brown, remove from oven and set aside to cool until nori is firm enough to handle.  Flip nori pieces, brush with syrup mixture, sprinkle with sesame seeds, seasoning and salt.  Return to the oven for another 5-7 minutes.  Remove from oven and cool completely.  Repeat until all the ingredients are used up.

Store in airtight container.
