Cooking with Nori Flakes
You can use nori flakes to add nutty flavor to soups, sauces or bases (like broth for fried tofu). They’re perfect for topping rice, noodles and legume dishes. Blend into your dried seasoning mix and use with meats, veggies or tofu. Scramble into your next batch of eggs.
Here are some more ideas, just to get you started:
Seasoning: make a seaweed gomasio that goes with everything you can chew. Lightly toast 1 cup of sesame seeds, 1 tsp. of sea salt, and 1 – 2 tbsp. nori flakes. Grind in small batches using a mortar and pestle or pulse entire batch in a food processor until fine. Try gomasio directly on a fresh salad, blended into the dressing (or both). Sprinkle over a bowl of rice, or mixed in with your seasoning blend.
Topping: sprinkle nori flakes directly over the top of salads, rice, and lentil or bean dishes.
Soups and noodles: blend into your soup or noodle recipes. Nori flakes are particularly tasty with Miso and ramen.
Once you start using nori flakes in your homemade recipes, you’ll realize how well they go with just about everything. You’ll use a little on this, a little on that.
