Ingredients

  • 1 sheet toasted nori
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • ¼ cup kaiware sprouts
  • ¼ cup mung bean sprouts
  • ¼ cup shredded carrots
  • ½ small English cucumber cut into matchsticks
  • ¼ avocado halved, pitted, sliced thinly
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes
  • Fresh lime juice
  • Sea salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Arrange the nori sheet on a cutting board or bamboo sushi mat with the long edge close to you.
  2. Spread the tahini in a thin layer over the nori sheet.
  3. Sprinkle the nutritional yeast flakes over the tahini.
  4. Layer the shredded carrots, cucumber sticks, bean sprouts, avocado, and kaiware sprouts on top of the bottom one-third of the nori sheet.
  5. Spritz with lime juice and season with sea salt to taste.
  6. Gently but firmly, roll the edge closest to you - filled with veggies - toward the center of the nori wrap, carefully rolling a sushi-like roll, using a napkin or bamboo mat to help with rolling.
  7. With a sharp (serrated) knife, carefully slice the roll, serve immediately, and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Nutritional yeast is very easy to find these days, available online or at any natural foods store. It's really addictively delicious. Umami flavor plus, plus if you know what I mean. If you don't care for carrots or cucumber, use fresh bell peppers, lettuce, cabbage or whatever veggies you love best. And, the rolling takes practice, but you can eat your mistakes. Because I love eating these rolls, I've invested in a bamboo sushi mat - it was about 5 bucks - and it does make the rolling easier.
