asian snack mix

After picking up some chips and salty snacks from the vending machines at work a few different times, I decided that even if I couldn’t find a snack that would perfectly fit my salty craving and my desire for a nutritionally healthy snack, that I could do better than chips from the vending machine. Preferably my snack would taste better too. So I tried some “Zen Party Mix” from Target and loved it. No it wasn’t 100% whole grain or full of protein and fiber, but it did a great job of satisfying that salty craving I get every afternoon.

This last weekend, during my trip to the store, I hoped that The Wedge would have something similar. They didn’t. But they did have some bulk rice crackers and sesame sticks. And I had almonds and wasabi peas at home. And now that I’ve got my own perfect ratio of ingredients, I love my Zen mix even more than the Target version.

Let’s just hope I can ration it out to last me through the week.

Asian Snack Mix - makes about 9 cups

  • 3 cups rice cracker mix
  • 3 cups sesame sticks
  • 2 cups mixed nuts (I would probably add 3 cups next time)
  • 1 1/2 cups wasabi peas

Combine all ingredients and mix.

    I wish I could shop at The Wedge regularly! I love that store. My brother and SIL live near Lake of the Isles, so I make it a regular stop when I’m visiting.
    Your snack mix looks delicious. Wasabi peas and almonds sound like a winning combo.

    Your snack mix looks fantastic! I LOOOOOOOVE rice crackers.

    And no worries about the iguana tamale comment — I’m a very laid-back vegetarian. I went veg for health and environmental reasons, not animal rights! I feel people have a right to eat meat if they want to, as long as the meat was cared for humanely when it was alive, and was killed in a safe and respectful way. I’ve just never cared for meat, so becoming a veg was an easy choice for me! :)
