Vegetable Nori Rolls with Cauliflower Rice

These Vegetable Nori Rolls with Cauliflower Rice are a fun way to eat your fiber-rich veggies. If you’ve never tried Cauliflower Rice before, you’re in for a treat. You’ll find that it’s quite simple to make the rice in a food processor but  be careful not to over-process the ingredients; otherwise, it won’t resemble rice! You might be wondering, ‘where’s the protein in this recipe?” Well, the secret is, it’s hiding in the rice. Hemp seeds and raw tahini are added to the rice to give the cauliflower a creamy and earthy flavour, in addition to protein. 3 tablespoons of hemp seeds = 10 grams of protein!  After spreading the Cauliflower Rice across one side of the nori sheet, you’ll fill the middle of the nori roll with shredded red cabbage, shredded carrots, cucumber matchsticks and sliced avocado. Tightly roll the nori using a sushi rolling mat and ta da! Simply slice the roll into 6-8 pieces and dip into the Spicy Tahini Sauce. Delicious!
