Seaweed crisps with a real crunch! Our scrumptious Seaweed Crisps are made of seaweed harvested from the deep blue seas of South Korea, and coated with a thin layer of crunchy tapioca to create the crunchiest seaweed snack. These yummy crisps are made without any nasties, and are gluten-free, vegan, and only contain about 100 calories per bag.
Harnessing the power of natural foods, the Seaweed Crisps combine nutritious seaweed with wholesome tapioca to offer a snack with health benefits. Seaweed is known for its vitamin and mineral content, and is a source of iodine which helps support cognitive function and functioning of the nervous system. Tapioca, extracted from the roots of the cassava plant, is a "resistant starch" which feeds the friendly gut-bacteria to the gut, thereby reducing inflammation and increasing fullness.
You can enjoy this guilt-free snack as part of your lunch, as an afternoon pick-me-up, in lunch boxes, to take on travels, and it can be even enjoyed sprinkled on salads and soups to add flavour.

- 1 tbsp macadamia oil
- 1 shallot sliced
- 2 spring onions sliced
- 1 bunch of bok choy, trimmed
- 1 bunch spinach, trimmed
- 1 bag Abakus Seaweed Crisps

First make the dressing by combining the ingredients. Set aside until needed.
Heat the oil in a pan and cook the shallots & spring onion over medium heat for 1 minute. Meanwhile, chop the bok choy, taking care to separate the leaves from the crunchy stem, cut the spinach. Add the chopped bok choy stems and stir around with the onions for a couple of minutes, until the stems start to soften. Add the bok choy leaves, chopped spinach and ¾ of the Abakus Seaweed Crisps to the wok and toss over high heat for another minute.
Add the dressing and stir until just wilted. The vegetables should be different shades of green, very bright in colour and crunchy in texture. Remove from heat and sprinkle with herbs, sesame seeds and the remaining Abakus Seaweed Crisps to the stir-fry for an extra added crunch .
