My daughter absolutely loves nori! From the time she was born until she was about three it’s something that was part of her weekly food rotation. As an infant, she was introduced to it since I nursed her.
Wrapping a variety of items into nori sheets was convenient since it turned most meals that needed to be eaten with utensils to something that could easily be consumed since the food was contained in its own portable roll.
While nori is commonly used to make sushi, we rarely use it that way. My daughter’s favorite way to eat nori is plain. The girl can go through several sheets of it daily, if I’d let her. Besides eating it plain we also use it instead of bread wraps. Sometimes I’ll grind it up and sprinkle over salads or various meals I prepare. I also use it to hold various seed/nut cheeses; sunflower, cashew, almond, etc.,
Over the years, I haven’t been as diligent in purchasing nori as I used to be. We eat a large variety of food. But, earlier today I ordered it just for my daughter. My daughter has been craving these for weeks. I’m not the only one in this house that has food cravings. I can’t wait too see her face when she receives her beloved Nori. I like surprising my daughter and while the things I give her isn’t always extravagant, I must say they’re always appreciated by her. For her, it’s the thought that matters.
