Rainbow Nori Rolls with Creamy Peanut Sauce

Raw vegetables wrapped in flavorful nori sheets and dipped in a sweet and tangy peanut sauce!

When I became a vegetarian, there was definitely a period of time where I lamented over certain foods that I was going to miss. Not many, but some. Sushi is definitely one of the some. But in recent months I’ve come to understand that a lot of what I loved in my favorite foods had everything to do with flavor and not much to do with the animal products (which on their own don’t really have flavor). Nori, for example, is FULL of wonderful flavor and I think was about 75% of what I actually enjoyed about sushi in the first place!

Raw vegetables wrapped in flavorful nori sheets and dipped in a sweet and tangy peanut sauce!Not only is nori delicious, but sea vegetables are crazy good for you. They’re packed with vitamins and minerals like potassium and ever elusive iodine, which is hard to find in other foods. Pack it with raw vegetables like crispy red cabbage and cucumbers alongside some creamy avocado and you’ve got an awesome meal ahead!

Serves: 1
Ingredients
For Wraps
  • 2 nori sheets
  • ⅓ c. carrots, sliced into thin matchsticks
  • ⅓ c. cucumbers, sliced into thin matchsticks
  • ⅓ c. green cabbage, sliced into thin matchsticks
  • ⅓ c. red cabbage, sliced into thin matchsticks
  • ½ of an avocado, pitted and thinly sliced
For Sauce
  • 2 T. peanut butter
  • 4 T. lime juice
  • 2 t. sugar
  • 2 t. sesame oil
  • 2 t. soy sauce
  • 3 T. water
Instructions
  1. Arrange half of each vegetable onto a nori sheet.
  2. Tightly roll the nori up with the vegetables inside, and wet the edge with a little water to help it seal when you reach the end.
  3. Repeat with the other nori sheet and rest of the vegetables.
  4. Whisk together all the ingredients for the sauce, and serve immediately with the nori rolls! The seaweed will get soft from the vegetables if it sits out for very long.

The raw vegetables inside makes these rolls taste so fresh and vibrant, but the peanut sauce is what really makes them irresistible to me! This will make you a double dipper, I promise.
