Get Your Kids to Eat Vegetables in the Crispiest, Snackiest Way: Nori Chips

This seaweed snack is savory, crisp, and packed with nutrients.
By Published Sept. 14, 2022

When you and your family are on the hunt for a snack that’s savory and crispy, but you’ve maxed out on your potato chip intake, it’s time to try making Nori Chips.

These chips will satisfy your urge for that light, airy crunch you might expect from a thin potato chip, with the added bonus that this seaweed is packed with vitamins and nutrients.

To make this simple snack, we painted sheets of nori lightly with sesame oil and then sprinkled a mixture of sesame seeds, garlic powder, and salt (plus a pinch of cayenne pepper, if your family is okay with a little heat) on top before cutting the sheets into bite-size pieces. After less than ten minutes in the oven and ten minutes of cooling time, these chips are ready to get devoured. 

Are they potato chips? No, but they’re delicious enough in their own right. When we sent this recipe from our forthcoming cookbook Kids Can Cook Anything! to our kid recipe testers, one reported that the chips were “Very easy, very crispy, and very tasty!” and another that they were “Crunchy, spicy, and awesome.”

Make them after school, or stick ‘em in your kids’ lunchbox instead of the usual baby carrots or celery sticks.
