Raw Avocado Nori Rolls (v+gf)

It’s day two of international cuisine week on Ahnestveggie. Today we’re whipping up something
Japanese inspired!

If you grew up in an Asian household like me, you will understand when I say…I JUST CAN’T SEEM TO GET AWAY FROM RICE!! There’s always cooked rice somewhere in the kitchen…
I try to stay away from rice, due to bloating and feeling very uncomfortably full after eating it.

Well today, I wanted to recreate a a sushi dish that had the same heartiness as rice, minus the
carbohydrates. Raw Avocado Nori Rolls

You will not regret eating 5-6 of these beauties! They may be vegan and raw, but I promise you, they have plenty of flavor and texture!

5.) Carefully grab the sushi mat, and slowly roll the wrap away from you, grabbing the seaweed as you go. (Kind of like a burrito)
6.) Keep rolling until you have something that looks like a log. *Make sure to press tightly as you roll to prevent any of the vegetables from falling out.
7.) Cut into bit size pieces and plate.

For a some kick, add a little Vegan  Spicy Mayo on top.
*Vegan Spicy Mayo: mix 1tbsp of Nasoya light vegan mayo with a dash of sriracha sauce.
