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.
