Veggie Nori Rolls for Cleansing

I found these online via Dr. Oz and I have to try them soon! I normally try to post recipes I have actually made, but I couldn’t wait to share this one. This is a great one for those who are doing a cleanse or want to get some detoxification benefits. I added my commenta in italics.

Vegetarian Nori Rolls with Nut “Rice” via Dr. Oz
Serves 2


1 cup soaked sunflower seeds (for a couple of hours or more; I often soak them overnight)
1 cup walnuts, soaked in pure water for 2 hours (or longer)
1/4 red onion
Chopped fresh herbs (your choice, I guess; I like basil and oregano for their anti-inflammatory and anti-viral/anti-bacterial benefits)
1 packet of nori wraps
1 carrot, cut into very thin strips
1 cucumber, peeled, seeded, and cut into thin strips
1/2 avocado, cut into strips
1/4 red cabbage, finely shredded
Wheat-free Tamari Soy Sauce
Fresh ginger
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp water


To make the “rice,” place the sunflower seeds, walnuts, onion, and herbs in a food processor. Process for 2 minutes, or until nut mixture has the consistency of rice. Set aside. Thinly slice the ginger and marinate in vinegar and water. Take a sheet of nori and spread one-fourth of the rice mixture onto it. Lay carrot, cucumber, red cabbage, avocado, and sprouts over it. Roll the nori up tightly, using a sushi mat if you have one. Cut the roll into about six pieces, using a sharp knife. Repeat for three more nori sheets. Serve wraps on a platter with ginger, wasabi, and wheat-free tamari.

Let me know what you think of this recipe.
