This is not your typical sushi roll. Although I very much enjoy a good platter of fresh sushi, there are those times when I want to go all veggies (usually when having a little break from certain foods). Here you get a good dose of minerals and detoxifying power from sea vegetables (nori). The cauliflower works really well as a rice substitute. The tamari is a great substitute for soy sauce mainly because tamari has little or no wheat (so less gluten) and is less salty than soy sauce. Also, Tamari is specifically a Japanese form of soy sauce while the common soy sauce we all know originated in China.
This is a quick snack so easy to make and kid friendly. Another great way to have the kids involved in the kitchen 😉
For the ‘rice’:
- ½ head of cauliflower
- ½ cup activated almonds**
- 1 tbsp tamari (gluten free)
- juice of ½ lemon
In a food processor, put all these ingredients until well incorporated and almost of ‘rice like’ consistency. Set aside.
For the fillings:
- Grated carrots (or cut out in thing strips)
- Cucumber (cut in strips)
- Avocado (cut in strips)
- Nori sheets
- On a flat surface lay out 1 nori sheet with the shiny side down.
- Scoop a couple of tablespoons of ‘cauliflower rice’ and spread out evenly across one end of the nori sheet.
- Align your favorite fillings along with the cauliflower rice.
- Start rolling by carefully grabbing the end of the nori sheet and making its way until the entir sheet is rolled up. To seal, moisten the edge of the nori sheet with a little water (just wet your fingers).
- Serve with Gluten-free tamari or organic soy sauce and wasabi.
