I’ve never been one for sushi. I imply the l kind with white rice and raw fish. I will not enter all the reasons. To me, a real nori roll is one that’s fulled of veggies, kept raw and full of color. It’s among my preferred things to consume. It’s so easy to prepare and makes a remarkable snack, lunch or supper. I’ve no idea about you, however I such as things complete – by that I mean full. I enjoy my meals rupturing with flavor, color and structure and there’s to be even more than one component in my rolls– no issue what. How boring is “kappa maki” – just cucumber all alone in that roll. So sad. There are an abundance of other impressive veggies that’d give anything to be inside a delicious roll of nori goodness.

So the trick to raw nori making is to utilize raw nori sheets. It does not work if you buy the toasted kind. So make sure to purchase it raw. Then for the filling, you can freak out with anything from sprouted quinoa, to chopped jicama (an unbelievable root vegetable from Mexico), to shredded cauliflower. But I went on an absolutely brand-new tangent. I soaked and sprouted some sunflower seeds and almonds– which are loaded with healthy fats and nutty texture. Then I blended them into my version of a mock tuna salad. I included some fresh herbs from my garden like dill, oregano and sage, included some dulse (a sea veggie– to provide it that real vegan “sea” taste) and various other spices to simply make it burst with unique taste.

Once you spread that on your raw nori sheet, you excel to go and add lots of veggies. I’d start with carrots, beets, cucumber, green spinach, mango sprouts, avocado. This is a respectable start and will fill your rolls rather well. I promise you’ll be happily surprised how tasty and filling these are. Take them to your next party or just enjoy them by yourself– they don’t even require to be dipped!

Rolling Instructions:

2. Spread about 1/4 cup of seed spread on the nori sheet (you can fill it in to the edges if you want)
3. Place your veggies down in a relatively thin row horizontally towards the bottom of the sheet
4. Begin to roll- lift the bottom edge closest to you, wrap over all the veggies, holding tight, remain to roll everything the means up– seal it with some water or extra seed spread
