I remember one of the first times that Bob and I went grocery shopping together to pick up some food while we were traveling. I grabbed a cart headed for the produce section and Bob wondered off in another direction. We met back up in the middle isle and compared our findings… I had fresh fruits and Bob had bags of dried seaweed. Seaweed? Dried seaweed? Your going to eat that? Really? Seaweed? I had never eaten or even seen dried seaweed before. From that day on, it became a staple in our lives. I have come to like it but I don’t love it like Bob. I don’t care for it as my main snack but I do enjoy it in small doses mixed up with other ingredients.
Much like this treat… smother it with “cheesy” chipotle sauce and then we are talking serious business. I have seen this type of recipe made in rolls, which I am sure I will be making soon but I thought it would be nice to make them into crackers. This recipe will yield 5 sheets of nori crackers. But because I can’t ever leave anything alone, I started getting creative with the toppings. Each sheet ended up with something different.
The nori has two sides. One side is shinier than the other and the shinier side should always face outside, so the sushi rice is always applied on the rougher side. The sushi rice must be placed on the rougher side because it absorbs more moisture and sticks to the rice better.
I adapted and slightly modified this recipe from my Spicy Touchdown Cheese Sauce recipe. Shoot you could about any raw cheese sauce on these and they would taste amazing. I have been really enjoying ground cumin lately in many of my recipes. Not only am I loving the flavor of it, it is known for many great health benefits; It is known to help control stomach pain, indigestion, diarrhea, nausea and morning sickness. It is also found to be effective in stimulating menstrual cycle in women. That is just to list a few. It is one the most aromatic spices, cumin gives off a pungent earthy aroma that is warm and almost sweet with hints of pine and lemon. The flavor is strong and slightly bitter with a fresh somewhat herbaceous finish. Goodness I almost sound like a connoisseur isone!
Remember when I mentioned earlier that I played around with other toppings? Here are a few.
In the photo below I just added sunflower and pumpkin seeds.
By the time I got around to snapping some photos Bob had eaten all
but these two strips! Good thing I caught him at this point so I could take a picture.
Below are the same two strips cut up into small squares.
Warning: The objects in this photo may appear larger then what they are in real life. hehe
Here I topped it with my Napa Garden Veggie Confetti Party Mix.
