Nori Rolls with Sticky Brown Rice
Nori is a sea vegetable that has been dried and made into flat thin sheets. It is what is used to make sushi. Nori can also be crumbled and sprinkled onto salads, cooked vegetables, or soups. It is rich in minerals and lignans. Lignans are compounds that are cancer-protective. Nori rolls typically contain raw fish and white rice, but they can also be made with sautéed tofu and sticky brown rice. A variety of thinly sliced vegetables are usually put into the center, including carrot, green onion, avocado, daikon radish, and red cabbage. These are then rolled together and sliced. They can be served with tamari, wasabi, and pickled ginger if you like. I've added leftover cooked salmon to these. Enjoy creating your own variations!
