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.

Perfect Buckwheat Pancakes

You can't go wrong with a good pancake for breakfast. Finding a recipe that is healthy and tastes good can be a little tricky however. I've tried almond meal and find it burns too quickly, I've tried coconut flour and it's just that little bit too dry. Buckwheat or even amaranth flour however both hold up under pressure, and with a touch of yoghurt could even pass for the real deal. This recipe is packed with protein, which will keep you fuller for longer, without the bloat. Enjoy! SaveSaveSaveSaveSave

Pulled pork down right is a winner for any meat lover. Rich in iron, lean and oh so tasty you can enjoy pulled pork in a slider, taco or as a main with some roast vegetables and slaw. I like to make a big batch of pulled pork from time to time and enjoy over the next couple of days. If you have a slow cooker, it's literally a matter of putting a roast shoulder in, rubbing it all over with spices, turning the slow cooker on and enjoying when it's ready. SaveSave
