Nori is the Japanese word for seaweed. Still not sure what it is? Well, it is the seaweed that is used to wrap around your sushi! Ahhh…that nori. It is basically a product of shredded algae, but in sheet form.
But do not underestimate this unadorned sea vegetable. Nori has a great source of vitamin A, B, C1, iodine, and protein. Not only can you use it for sushi, but you can use it to make soup or do as I do, I just have it as a light snack! Munch, munch away!
