I have always been a HUGE fan of sushi, so I decided to create a healthier version of them due to my diet changes and inspiration from all the delicious recipes from Co-inside Wellbeing.
Thankfully sushi (aka nori rolls) not only taste great, but they are packed full of health benefits too…
Nori contains up to 50% protein and is a good source of Vitamin A, vitamin B3 and folate
Studies have shown that nori can also reduce the chance of breast cancer as well as lower cholesterol levels!
The recipe makes enough for 1 sushi roll cut into about 6 pieces. To make more, simply double or triple the recipe.
1 sushi nori sheet
1/3 cup of quinoa
1 teaspoon of coconut oil
½ organic vegetable stock cube
2/3 cup filtered water
3 narrow strips of carrot
3 narrow strips of avocado
3 narrow strips of cucumber
Small handful of fresh herbs (coriander or parsley)
2 teaspoons vegan sunflower seed mayonnaise
Couple of cracks of pepper
How to Make:
- Cook the quinoa with the vegetable stock cube, water and coconut oil until the water is completely soaked**. Ensure quinoa has enough coconut oil to make a sticky mixture similar to sushi rice
- Spread out your sushi mat with the nori sheet on top
- Use a knife to evenly distribute the quinoa over the nori sheet
- Slice 3 long thin pieces each of avocado, cucumber, carrot and herbs if using. Place them a ¼ of the way down the nori sheet
- Drizzle on the mayo if using and a few cracks of pepper
- Use your sushi mat to roll the sushi, pinching it in after each roll to secure
- Cut the sushi in half and then even slices about 3cm apart
- Enjoy on their own as the quinoa gives it so much flavour!
** Alternatively, to keep this recipe raw, soak quinoa for 24 hours and rinse well before using.
