Who says you have to ditch the sushi rolls to be healthy? Crowd pleasing, mouth watering and super fun to make sushi rolls sans rice, sans fish and full of living nutrients. Down here in Sayulita we take every opportunity to host friends and introduce them to new and healthy or cooked cuisine. Kevin from WildBodyWellness.com and I prepared a massive platter of assorted sushi rolls for our guests the other day. Everyone loved them! (Even the self proclaimed sushi haters and non-raw fooders).

Mixed Veggie Sushi Rolls:

  • Raw Organic Nori Rolls
  • 3 Avocados, Sliced
  • 1 Large Beet, Shredded
  • 1 Bag of Sunflower Sprouts
  • 1 Bag of Pea Sprouts
  • 1 Bag of Red or Green Leaf Lettuce
  • 3 Red or Yellow Bell Peppers, Sliced
  • 2 Cucumbers, Sliced

Instructions:

Step 1: Place your Nori Sheets on a damp, not wet cutting board. Place a row of sliced avocado, cucumber, assorted veggies, lettuce & sprouts in the upper middle of your nori sheet. You can mix and match your veggies, some can have carrots or beets or both, some can just have cucumber and bell peppers, some have lettuce, some have sprouts etc. You can use the cauliflower rice in any of the rolls, or leave it out.

Step 2: Fold over the top and roll, and place at the top of your cutting board.

Step 3: Use a very sharp knife to slice your sushi rolls and place on a platter for serving.

Cauliflower Rice:

  • 1 Head of Cauliflower
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 tbsp. Dulse Flakes
  • 1 tsp. Himalayan Salt
  • 1 Lime, Squeezed
  • 1 tsp. Chili Powder *optional

Instructions:

Step 1: In a food processor, pulse your cauliflower until fine like rice (or use parsnip).

Step 2: Add avocado and seasonings and mash together with a fork.

Step 3: Use to spread on your nori sheets as desired.
