Fried Rice with Nori

Our nori goes excellently with all cooked grains, especially rice. Simply roast it and crumple it on, or sprinkle on our pre-roasted Nori Granules Sea Seasoning. For something a little creative with rice try this recipe from Montse Bradford.

  • 1 cup onions, diced

  • 1/2 cup carrots, cut into matchsticks

  • 1 cup roasted nori

  • 1/2 cup celery, diced

  • 2 Tbls. soy sauce
