Nori Rolls With Spicy Tahini Drizzle [Recipe]



Email to Your Friends

Divide ¼ sliced red cabbage, 1 large carrot + 1 small yellow summer squash + 1 small cucumber (all peeled and julienned) and 1 ripe sliced avocado on 4 nori seaweed sheets. Drizzle with mix of 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice, 1 ¼ tbsp chickpea miso paste, 1 tbsp raw tahini, 2 medjool dates, 1 mashed garlic clove, ¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes. Roll nori sheets in a tube shape.

If you like California Rolls, you will love these nori wraps (though personally, I think they are so much better!). The tahini dressing is truly addictive — you are going to want to dress everything in it — and the cabbage provides a nice crunch.

If possible, use a food processor to slice the cabbage so you can get it super thin. Also, make sure the vegetable strips are all the same width and length so that they do not hang over the edges of the nori sheets; this will make rolling up the wraps easier. Use leftover tahini drizzle as a dressing for salads or as a dip for crudités (traditional French appetizers consisting of sliced or whole raw vegetables which are sometimes dipped in a vinaigrette or other dipping sauce). This recipe serves 4.
