Quinoa Nori Rolls
Before I go into detail about this delicious recipe I’d just like to just say THANK YOU all so much for coming to visit my blog. Yesterday I reached over 100,000 views in more 150 countries, which was beyond exciting! Everywhere from Iran to Albania, Belize, Mongolia, Guatemala, Bosnia, Zimbabwe, Honduras, Rwanda… It’s crazy. 6 of 7 continents – not expecting to ever make it to Antarctica though! I’m so happy to be spreading my healthy message across the world! I really love writing this blog more than anything so it’s awesome to know enough people love it too to keep visiting!
Makes 6 rolls – enough for 3 people:
– nori rolls (normally have 2-3 per person)
– 3/4 of a cup of quinoa (195g)
– 2 carrots
– 1 zucchini (courgette)
– 1 large red pepper
– a handful of asparagus stalks
– 2 avocados
Optional: bean sprouts
For the avocado cream recipe see here
Start by cooking the quinoa with boiling water, add a sprinkling of salt in the beginning as this will be absorbed as it cooks to make it more flavoursome.
Then chop all your veggies into long thin strips – of you’re using asparagus you might want to steam it for 3-5 minutes first, although you don’t have to. Next, make the avocado cream.
Once the quinoa is cooked and has cooled enough you’re ready to roll! The best way to do this is to first put a layer of avocado cream in a strip on the very left hand side, then top it with a sprinkling of quinoa and veggies. Once you’re ready roll it tightly to the opposite side, then chop into bite sized pieces using a sharp, preferably cerated knife. Then eat and enjoy!
