Delicious fresh and crunchy Raw Vegan Sushi rolls are filled with a yummy pate, avocado, carrot, and bell pepper!
I was in the mood for eating nori rolls today, I decided to make a delicious pate with sunflower seeds instead of rice. This sunflower seed pate was perfect for mimicking salmon. It was also bursting with fresh flavors of the vegetables. I wrapped it in raw un-toasted seaweed sheets along with avocado, carrots and bell peppers, so it is perfect for someone who is on a raw food diet.
I also have a great recipe for Vegan Sushi made with rice.
Choosing when possible, fresh organic veggies for your sushi ensures that you will end up with a flavorful recipe.
Nori seaweed is very popular in Asian cuisines, and it is perfect sea vegetable for someone who loved fish and is transitioning to a vegan diet. It is very healthy because it is loaded with B Vitamins, fiber, amino acids, and a significant amount of iodine. Read more about the benefits of nori HERE.
