I received an email asking for a healthy snack mix using Matcha. So here is a delicious one to a fellow friend with rosacea in the United kingdom.
2 cups mixed nuts (non salted)
2 cups rice chex cereal
3 cups granola plain or vanilla works
5 sheets of roasted nori (seaweed) sheets
3 tbsp flaxseed
1/4 cup canola oil
2 tbsp. Matcha tea powder
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a mini food processor, process nori sheets into small pieces, toss in flaxseed and miso and blend until smooth. Place nuts, oil, cereal and granola in large bowl. Add in wet mixture of nori (should be thick) and blend well with spatula. Spread mixture on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Toast in oven for 15 minutes, removing every 3 minutes to stir with spatula. Bake until lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool to room temp. The mixture will crisp as it cools. Once cooled toss into large bag or mixing bowl, sprinkle with Matcha and toss well to incorprate. Serve immediately, take as on the go snack or store in airtight container for up to 10 days.
Chefs Note: seaweed is loaded with all sorts of vitamins, minerals, fiber, high quality protein, and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. It has cooling properties and helps with inflammation. Great ingredient for rosacea.
