Recipe Directions

  1. Place a nori sheet flat onto a sushi rolling mat or cutting board.
  2. Put one of your lettuce leaves on the nori sheet, covering the half of the sheet that is nearest you.
  3. Place the ingredients about a half inch from the edge of the sheet in a narrow pile.
  4. Fold the nori sheet over the ingredients and begin to roll the sheet away from you. Make the roll as tight as possible for easier cutting and eating.
  5. Seal the end of the nori sheet by dabbing the edge with water, Braggs or Nama Shoyu.
  6. Cut the roll with a slightly angled cut at the center.
  7. Repeat with the remaining nori sheets.

Kandace's Thoughts

Before switching to a raw, vegan diet, I was a huge fan of sushi. This roll has become a weekly staple, served with Braggs for dipping. Based on a recipe found in RAWVolution (the orignal called for daikon and a different kind of sprouts, but I was having trouble finding daikon and the sprouts so I came up with this variation).

I took a raw foods prep class and she made sushi. In place of rice(which I hated before and I reason I often didn't do sushi) she used a blend of root veggies ground up in the food processor. I think it was a mix of turnip and parsip, then put in a nut milk bag to drain out the extra liquid. Some seasonings were added, but the ground up root veggies made a GREAT rice substite. I am actually going to try to make some tomorrow so will post if it goes well, lol or perhaps even if it doesn't! I have turnip, parsnip and even a daikon radish. Might make for warming rolls :)

I made raw sushi last week without a recipe and had problems rolling so I searches the web and found a recipe called for a not paste to spread on half the sheet and to seal the nori.I lost the link but it was mainly pine nuts ( i used almonds and walnuts and sunflower seeds and a little lemon or apple cider vinegar 1 teaspoon garlink 1 of ginger and a little raw soy sauce.In the FP to a spreadable texture. It was simply the best sushi I ever had! Hope I find the link again but I listed the main ingredients here...Try it and tell me what you think!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but i heard, for us vegans out there, that nori is full of fish/shellfish remains as when bits are drag up when it is harvested and they don't bother to take it out.

try pulsing a peeled jicama in the food processor til it looks like rice. Let some of the moisture drain out of it on a towel. It doesn't stick quite as well as sushi rice, but it really does the trick!

I took this on a picnic (slice the roll right before serving) with a Braggs/wasabi dip & it was great. Made a lot more than 4 rolls, though. I added a very thin slice - like a peeling - of ginger to each. A friend suggests using sprouted wild rice instead of bean sprouts - haven't tried it yet. I really need to refresh my rolling skills! :)

Alfalfa sprouts make an excellent rice substitute in nori rolls. Fills them out, makes it easy to roll etc.

I made them with the nori.Yes! I read it wrong and used a whole cucumber instead of 1/4 but it was soooo good that way. Made twice as many. I could eat these every day!

Yes, but then you don't get the benefit of the seaweed/iodine.

You can also use a large lettuce leaf to make roll-ups!

Not only is this delicious, and satisfies my cravings for sushi, but it's really good to have in my diet. My nutritionist definitely recommended the nori because it's high in iodine, and like many folks, I'm deficient in iodine. So I try to have these every chance I get.

Tip: Have some wasabi with the Braggs, for an even more sushi-like flavor!
