Gluten-free rice-less Nori Rolls

Gluten-free rice-less Nori Rolls

I find it simple and fast using nori to roll my veggies. The trick is not let it get too moist or have it be too dry. It's definitely a balancing act, but isn't' that life! I especially liked this recipe because of the jicama spread. It gives a nice hearty consistency to keep you satiated, yet not bloated or foggy-brained. 

INGREDIENTS
  • Roll Filling/ Assembly: 20 sheets nori 
  • Prepared “rice” mixture 
  • 2 cups peeled and grated carrots (Carrots may be tossed in lemon juice to preserve) 
  • 2 cups peeled and julienned cucumbers
FOR JICAMA SPREAD
  • 1 jicama, peeled, roughly chopped 
  • 4 cups sunflower seeds, soaked for at least 30 minutes 
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt 
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup 
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

 

COOKING TIME

45 minutes

INSTRUCTIONS
  • On a clean surface lay one sheet nori, sleek shiny side DOWN. 
  • Spread about ¼ cup “rice” mixture on the bottom half of nori sheet, leaving ½” space at the bottom. Rice should only spread half way up the sheet. 
  • Midway over the rice mixture, align a strip of carrot and a strip of cucumber, lengthwise, across the surface. 
  • Using clean hands, roll nori sheet from the bottom and roll away from you, in one fluid motion, making a long sleek tube. 
  • Before the nori is fully rolled, swipe the small strip of nori at the top of the roll, with fresh water to help seal the roll. 
  • Repeat steps 1-5 until all rolls are prepared. Set rolls aside and let nori dry before slicing and packaging. 
  • Serve with Nori roll dipping sauce

 

FOR CAULIFLOWER MASH
  • In food processor puree jicama until finely chopped, resembling small grains. syrup, and apple cider vinegar. 
  • Drain jicama using a sieve, press to release excess water, may be pressed several times. 
  • Add drained jicama back to a food processor and add soaked sunflower seeds, salt, maple 
  • Process until a smooth, dough-like consistency is created. Scraping food processor down with rubber spatula to fully incorporate all ingredients is necessary
