toasted seaweed

Seaweed can be a great snack especially in a lunchbox for out and about or for school. Nori is high in iodine, vitamin C and protein! We have two different flavours here for you to try, a great snack for mums too!

Please note for proper storage of these you will need to keep a silica gel sachet from your previous seaweed snacks or something similar otherwise the seaweed snacks will need to be eaten soon after baking. There is usually a silica sachet in the nori packet.

If the weather is humid or wet, once the seaweed snacks have cooled they need to be put straight into a sealed container with a silica gel sachet or they will become soft.

For babies under 12 months, you can crush or blitz this seaweed into a sprinkle. Once they are chewing/biting food well, you can then offer as a sheet like this.

  • 1 TBSP tamari
  • 1 TBSP sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp sesame seeds
  • 8 nori sheets

  • Repeat to make 4 lots of double sheets, using up all of the Nori sheets
  • Place onto a lined baking tray and cover with another layer of baking paper. Place a glass baking dish over the top to use as a baking weight or something similar to hold down the baking paper so that the seaweed sheets don't curl up when baking

  • Remove from the oven and set aside to cool slightly for a minute or so before slicing into pieces with scissors
