I LOVE wraps! They are so good and make a fantastic meal… but with my gluten sensitivity, it’s not always easy to find wraps at the store without scary sounding ingredients in them. Sometimes I need to be a little creative. Nori sheets are a staple in my pantry – they are quick & easy to use and make a delicious wrap.
It’s easy to just spread some hummus or guac on them, but sometimes I feel like putting a little more effort into it. And I’ve been using cashews for so much lately, I figured I would give sunflower seeds a try =)
1 cup of sunflower seeds (soaked for a at least 4 hours – I soaked mine in the morning and they were ready late afternoon)
1/2 cup of nutritional yeast
the juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp of tahini
2 tbsp of coconut yogurt (this is optional – I just find it gives a good “cheesy” taste)
a sprinkle of sea salt
Place all ingredients in your blender or food processor and turn on and add a bit of water until you reach the consistency you would like.
This was enough to make 8 small nori wraps (4 sheets total) and there was some leftover. I have another recipe coming soon to show you how to use the leftovers =)
Take some nori sheets, I usually cut mine in half. Put 1 tsp of paste on half of the sheet and smooth it out, put your favourite veggies on as toppings (I used red peppers, cucumber, carrot & sunflower sprouts), use the lemon you used for the pâté and rub the juice end at the end of the roll to help it stick better together once rolled. Roll your it up and that’s a wrap haha ;p
I served mine up with a nice, big salad:
