Rainbow Nori Rolls with Zesty Peanut Sauce

September 14, 2015 0 Comments

If you're stuck for a healthy lunch option, make sure you always have some nori wraps on hand as you can virtually wrap anything in them and it will taste delicious. To make my life easier, I like to pre-cook a big pot of brown rice on a Sunday and pop it in here, there and everywhere throughout the week. Today I squeezed it into a Rainbow Salad Nori teamed with a zesty peanut saucy.
For Nori Rolls
  • 2 nori sheets
  • 1 small carrot, julienned
  • 1/2 cucumber, julienned
  • 1/4 small red cabbage, julienned
  • 1 small beetroot, julienned
  • 2 cale leaves chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
  • ½ of an avocado, pitted and thinly sliced (optional)
  • sesame seeds (optional)

TIP: You can totally cheat this by buying a pre-julienned bag from a supermarket

  1. Place a damp, clean kitchen towel on your working bench and place your first nori sheet ontop of it, this will help it soften slightly.
  2. Arrange half of your filling mixture on your nori shee, leaving about a cm gap at the left and right edge to allow it to seal.
  3. Tightly roll the nori up, and wet the edge with a little water to help it seal.
  4. Repeat and cut with sharp knife into desired sushi size.
  5. Serve immediately with zesty peanut sauce.


Zesty Peanut Sauce
  • 2 tbs peanut butter
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 2 tsp rice malt syrup/coconut nectar or honey
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame oil (The Spiral Organic Toasted Sesame Oil is pretty amazing)
  • 2 tsp tamari sauce
  • 3 tbs water
  1. Whisk all ingredients.
  2. Dip and enjoy.
