Nori wraps are a staple of mine- a main food group, almost!
They are so easy, healthy, delicious, and inexpensive.
They are also very versatile, and I'm always just putting in whatever I think will be yummy.
Mineral rich foods like seaweed(or raw chocolate, mmm)seem to really influence my general state, emotionally, mentally and physically, in a really positive way- I just seem to function better on all fronts!
I'm starting to put together a blog at livelydirt.blogspot.com, with easy, mostly cheaper, healthy raw ideas/recipes. It's just beginning:)
This is a great way to use up leftovers and is surprisingly delicious. Get creative and experiment! You can use those tidbits of leftovers you don't want to waste and nourish yourself with great nutrition while you are at it! My wrap filling was a mix of leftover sprouted quinoa, veggie salad and an avocado. With a big juicy tomato on the side to finish off lunch, your tummy will thank you!
Makizushi (lit. rolled sushi) or makimono (lit. variety of rolls) is cylindrical piece, formed with the help of a bamboo mat, called a makisu. Makizushi is generally wrapped in nori, but can occasionally be found wrapped in a thin omelette, soy paper, cucumber, or parsley. Makizushi is usually cut into six or eight pieces, which constitutes a single roll order. Below is a RAW FOOD RECIPE I came up with last night.

For an easy lunch option I keep a packet of nori sheets in the cupboard at work so I can stuff them with whatever greens and veges I bring with me or grab from the supermarket. Sprouts make a great stuffing for nori rolls as they are nice and compact allowing you to roll it up nicely. Almost any vegetable works in a nori roll, zucchini or cucumber, grated carrot, tomatoes, olives, herbs, the combinations are endless. Asparagus is right in season now and it’s the perfect shape for a nori roll.
Easy, quick, and simple nori wraps that aren't full of nuts. Keep well in the fridge for a day or two - I like to make them to take to work!
