Cauliflower Rice reduces the glycemic impact of homemade nori rolls!
I stopped eating Sushi out for the most part as I kept experiencing Wheat-laced rolls and unnecessary headaches. I’ve had raw sushi at a restaurant before and made it once but I’m not 100% raw, and now have an increased sensitivity for nuts – which the raw recipe is loaded with – so I decided to treat myself to something tastier and totally body friendly!!
The Nori rolls were so easy to make, Pictured are the following delicious varieties:
Pickled Diakon Radish with Kale and Avocado
Cucumber, Carrot, Pea Shoot and Avocado
Asparagus (Cooked with Bragg Liquid Aminos)
Since the time of the picture, I have discovered Daiya’s Cream Cheese and have since enjoyed Sweet Potato Tempura with Cream Cheese, mastered by Allergy Awesome Chef, Keith Clark. I highly recommend Daiya Cream cheese for your Vegan sushi endeavors!
Now, how does one make sushi rice with a head of cauliflower?
1.) Clean and chop cauliflower into chunks appropriate in size for your food processor. (No food processor? No worries! Don’t chop your cauliflower, but take it to a cheese grater.)
2.) In a large wok or pan, add coconut oil or olive oil. Bring to medium heat and add cauliflower. Cover and let cook until semi-soft, stirring occasionally.
3.) Add cooked and cooled (Unless you want to enjoy warm, which works too!) cauliflower to a mixing bowl, add 1-2 tbsp of plain hummus. This will make the CR sticky for spreading onto the Nori.
Making nori rolls is so easy – to anyone who hasn’t tried before, don’t fret! I’m serious, it’s so easy!
Get all of your ingredients ready. This is your sushi, use whatever you want!
A little prep goes a long way. I use a bamboo placemat to layout my Nori rolls.
Here’s how to assemble your Nori Roll:
I’ve since gotten better at bringing the CR all the way to the end edges of the nori.
Before rolling, you can cut off excess Nori, or leave it and wet it to make it stick to the other end. You don’t want too much overlap/double layer Nori because it gets difficult to slice and chew.
So yeah, roll up a bunch of these bad boys, choose your sharpest knife and cut carefully. I find that most Nori Rolls cut into 1/8ths well.
