Mixed Vegetable Seaweed Rolls with Sesame Dipping Sauce

I bought seaweed and it sat unused for a long time.  I eventually started by putting a piece of Kombu in soups or when I was boiling water or making rice to increase the nutritional value.

I like sushi, which uses Nori wraps but I couldn’t get myself to make anything with seaweed at home.  Then one day, I was ready and after reading many recipes I found this one by Ani Phyo in her book Ani’s Raw Food Detox.

It is super simple to make and super delicious.

ani nori wrap (1)

  • 2 nori sheets, raw and untoasted preferably
  • 2 tbsp miso, unpasteurized, any colour
  • 2 cups sprouts, any type
  • ½ c sliced avocado
  • ¼ c julienned cucumbers
  • ¼ julienned or shredded carrots
  • 1-2 tbsp hemp seeds (optional)

Spread miso on the ½ of the nori sheet. Layer the sprouts, avocado, cucumber and carrots on the miso. Roll it tightly.

Whisk everything together.

What great dishes do you make with seaweed?

I love mint!!! It grows in my garden and during the summer I will pick it and freeze it. I will either make Busy Mama Grab n’ Go Smoothie Packs or freeze it on it’s own.

That’s right, you can freeze any greens, check out how! Continue reading »

Piri Piri Veg and Chicken

Piri Piri Chicken with Kale Waldorf Salad!

Serves 4

· 2 chicken breasts from Grant’s Family Butcher Shop (or other local organic meat), diced up or go VEGETARIAN and skip the chicken – load up on beans and veggies

· 1 can of organic chickpeas

· 1 jar of Piri Piri sauce from Harmony Farm

· 1 red (or any color pepper) diced in big chunks

· 1 onion diced in big chunks

piri piri veg & chicken cooking in the crock pot

Put the chicken, piri piri sauce and chickpeas in your crock pot and let simmer for the day. An hour before serving add the pepper and onion (or throw in at the beginning if you would like).

Serve with brown rice (or brown and white if making the transition to whole grains), steamed vegetables such as green beans and cauliflower, Nann bread (from Harmony Farm) and ENJOY! This dish is on the spicy side but we all love it. Add organic plain yogurt on top to mellow the flavours!

Tired of cooking vegetarian meals for one and another meal for the meat eaters, this allows you to pick out the meat and enjoy the chickpeas and vegetables. If you don’t want the meat at all, leave it out or cook in two separate pots.

Piri Piri for the kids and husband

Enjoy another great meal that is quick and easy to make Sesame Ginger Stirfry or Chickpea Croquettes
