Philodendron Leaf

NORI

Laver, purple laver, redware or sea tangle is one of the most commonly eaten seaweeds. Sheets of dried laver look somewhat like purple cellophane.

Nori is sold pressed and dried into 8 inch square thin papery sheets, in strands and as a powder. The square sheets are used mainly to wrap sushi and rice balls. The strands and powder are used as a seasoning or garnish.

Called Nori by the Japanese, it is also popular in Wales, where it is used to make 'laverbread'.  Welsh laverbread is boiled laver mixed with oatmeal and deep fried.  Laverbread is used to thicken soups and in seafood stuffings.
