Raw Rolls



I know I should be doing something like cleaning up the kitchen (aka: bombsite), making creative flower arrangements with photos like the one I saw at playgroup yesterday that made me feel like a loser for not even having time to sort my socks from my undies, or, doing some reading about parenting that might have held a magical secret for dealing with my 7 month old who had a meltdown during our walk today that resulted in my pulling out my boob in the middle of the street in -4 degree weather. But no....instead, as Aodhan munches on his monkey, I am blogging! Yah!

I made a killer lunch today. Really raw avocado rolls. Not just raw veg, but raw EVERYTHING. These rice-free, protein packed sushi rolls were a perfect 'get me through the rest of the day until Kevin comes home' kind of snack. And, so much more easy to assemble then their rice filled brother.

Seriously - you have to make these. Go and do it right now. Go!

2 cups of raw sunflower seeds - soaked for 1 hour.
1 lime
2 sheets of nori
1 ripe avocado

I whirled up my seeds and lime in my food processor (much to Aodhan's horror), and then simply used this seedi-goodness in place of rice filler for my rolls. It took me all of two seconds to assemble the avocado rolls and about 2 minutes to down them! Num Num!


And...as you can see - they were fun for the whole family!

The raw rolls sound great! It's always nice to see recipes for quick and easy vegan food and especially raw vegan food. This would be a great meal to take on the road or make when traveling. I'll have to keep this in mind :)

Very interesting!
I wanna try these out for sure, my best friend is vegan and will like these ... I myself just recently started a new lifestyle - I'm not vegan but I am trying a meat-free, dairy-free and gluten-free diet :)

Such a cute baby! =)

I have some seed cheese made up in the fridge. Think I'll turn that into "raw rolls". Thanks for the great idea!
