Nori Flakes + Spoon Set
A perfectly sized set of our Nori Flakes + a hand-crafted solid brass spoon — to sprinkle seaweed on all your favorite dishes. This bundle includes our nori flakes, a savory, mineral-rich seaweed that can be sprinkled on anything from avocado toast to grain bowls to popcorn for an umami kick, a brass seaweed spoon + muslin bag designed by our friends at Earthen, an independent, woman-owned, San Francisco-based shop featuring homeware rooted in folk craft and modern design. Plus our favorite recipe cards for seaweed flakes.
Made with 100% Wild California Nori. Hand-harvested and ground by us, this jar of pure Nori seaweed is a tasty and nutritious addition to your kitchen. Our Nori Flakes are a 2021 Good Food Awards Winner.
How to use: Sprinkle on rice bowls, veggies, eggs, popcorn, fish … anywhere you use salt! Or use in salad dressing, smoothies, breads, or desserts for a savory nutrient boost.
Hand-made Brass Seaweed Spoon:
Size: 3” long x 1/2” wide
Care: Hand wash. This food-safe brass will develop a natural patina over time, but you can choose to keep it bright with a food safe brass polish like Goddard’s. For a home remedy: Dissolve ½ tsp salt into ¼ cup vinegar, and add flour until the mixture becomes a paste. Rub into the brass, leave for about 10 minutes, then rinse with warm water and buff dry.
A Sea of Flavor
Over and over again, we fall in love with seaweed's culinary potential. From the depth it brings to broth and soup, to the savory burst of flavor on avocado toast, to the umami richness of seaweed flakes on a crispy fried egg, seaweed is endlessly versatile and inspiring. You'll find that it lends a savory balance to rich and sweet foods, a punch of seasoning to mild flavors, and a briny backbone to just about anything. Use it anywhere you use salt and taste the difference.
A Nourishing Green
We cringe to call it a "superfood", overused as that word is, but the truth is... seaweed is rich! In nutrients, fiber, and protein. Every sprinkle of seaweed flakes is packed with essential vitamins and minerals like iodine, calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, and B vitamins. Seaweeds contain omega-3 fatty acids and compounds like fucoidan, which has been shown to have anti-oxidative and anti-tumor properties.
A Salty Climate Solution
Ecologically speaking, seaweed is a regenerative and healing "plant." The ocean absorbs 40% of the carbon we release into the atmosphere, which acidifies the water and prevents shellfish and corals from growing their shells and skeletons. Absorbing the carbon into seaweed can offset that damage, without the environmental pitfalls of industrialized farming.
