Nori Nachos!

Robyn Openshaw - Jun 08, 2011 - This Post May Contain Affiliate Links

When were in Cali, we bought lots of snacks at health food stores to stock the SunWarrior Party House. (I know, I know, I said I'd never do it again, but Tony Ricco and his water balloons weren't there.) We bought these fabulous little things called Nori Nachos. So of course we saved the package with the ingredients, and we came home and duplicated it. It's a great recipe if you like cheesy chips, and it's a great way to get iodine-rich nutritional support for your thyroid. Here it is, ENJOY!

Nori Nachos


  • 6 nori sheets (raw are the most nutritious, toasted have the mildest flavor)
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 carrot
  • 2 tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup cashews
  • ½ cup macadamia nuts
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 tsp sea salt


  1. Puree tomato, carrot, vinegar, and lemon juice until smooth in high-speed blender, about 60 seconds.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients (except nori sheets) and blend again until smooth, about 60 seconds.
  3. Spread mixture in a thin layer on nori sheets. Cut sheets into desired shapes and place on racks in dehydrator.
  4. Dry below 115 degrees for approximately 24 hours, until crispy. Keep at room temperature in a paper sack.

    Hi Robyn!

    I just got your book! I am excited to start as I feel like a mashmellow…I am so sluggish and tired all the time.

    These look good, but I have no idea what Nori is. Where can I get it?

    Im a brand-newbie!

    Thank you!

      Beth Ann, welcome! Nori is dried sheets of seaweed (the things they roll sushi up in). Great for your thyroid (i.e. metabolism) but it does have a fishy taste if you buy raw sheets. Take a step at a time and just keep on with adding good stuff and pretty soon bad stuff will be minor or eliminated, woohoo!

    Hi Robyn,

    I stumbled upon your website last fall and love to read your blog. Hope to someday get your 12step program, but I did get a Blentec & love it!!!! Our family has tried a few green smoothie recipes and the more I make the better I get at them and our family enjoys them, including my kids (7, 6 & 2yr) I tried a different version of the Hot Pink Smoothie & my husband and I love it…although I put in almonds. We’re in the middle of a big move but once we get settled I’m looking fwd to getting back to the natural way we were eating.

    My son is severely allergic to tree nuts(anaphlaxic level) …the more I’ve tried vegan/raw recipes I’ve noticed a lot of recipes have these nuts in them. Almonds are the only nut I can cautiously give him, as for some reason he doesn’t have severe reactions to almonds…but I have to be careful about where they come from & what facilities,etc.

    ….SO what would be a good replacement for these nuts? Could I just use almonds? The Nori Nachos look very yummy and I want to try them but definately need substitutes for the cashew & macademia nuts.

      Jen, if I use sesame seeds instead of cashews in the Hot Pink smoothie, I don’t even notice the difference? Good luck. 🙂 I haven’t done a ton of experimenting with that…

    I actually ate these out of the package and they are so addictive, I’m definitely going to try this recipe, THanks Robyn
