Quick and Tasty Veggie Nori Rolls
Sick of sandwiches and bored of biscuits? It could be time to get some nori, or as some people call it, kale of the sea. Made from a species of red algae called Porphyra
nori is dried, edible seaweed widely known for its use in making sushi, as well as savoury pancakes, sprinkles for soup and rice dishes, in rice crackers, or just eaten on its own.
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 5-10 minutes
Serves: Each roll serves 1 person
Nori sheets are available from most supermarkets
Nori sheets - If you don’t like nori, you can try shaved cucumber, lettuce, rice paper, soy paper and Inari, which is a fried pocket of tofu, soaked in a flavourful liquid.
1 cup mung bean sprouts
1 red/green/yellow capsicum – thinly sliced
1 cucumber- thinly sliced length-ways
½ cup purple cabbage
1 cup kale
Ingredients ready to roll, with the avocado mixture
A sushi making kit can sometimes be costly, all you really need for this recipe is a bamboo rolling mat – (Called a Makisu
in Japanese) covered in plastic wrap (For easy clean up). If you don’t have one handy, a folded over clean tea-towel with a layer of glad wrap in between the roll and the tea towel will suffice. You will also need a sharp knife.
Rolling mat, sharp knife, tamari
Assemble your veggies on the bottom half of the sheet
