Purple Power Sushi Roll

Course Gluten Free, Main Course, Snack, Vegetarian

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup purple sweet potato
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 cup raw cauliflower-rice
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 sheets sushi nori (seaweed paper)
  • 1/4 cup sliced purple cabbage
  • 1/4 shredded carrot
  • 1/2 medium avocado, sliced
  • 1/4 cucumber, sliced
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1 Tbsp coconut aminos, soy sauce, or tamari for dipping

Instructions

  1. Cut the sweet potato into discs and then half-moons, steam for 20 minutes or until easily pierced with a fork.

  2. In the meantime, heat the oil in a pan. Sautee the cauliflower rice over medium heat for two minutes.

  3. Add the eggs to the cauliflower and cook until scrambled or combined to mimic sticky rice. Add salt and pepper to taste and set aside, off heat to cool

  4. Start assembling sushi roll with a thin layer of “rice” on top of the nori, or seaweed paper.

  5. Layer veggies in any order along the top of the "rice", keeping the rows as tight as possible. Sprinkle the sesame seeds.

  6. Tightly roll the sushi towards you, tucking in the filling as you go. Once rolled, wet the nori lightly, pressing to seal.

  7. Slice into sushi or eat as a mini burrito, dipping in your sauce of choice. Enjoy!

Tip of the Day

Yes, folks, there a difference between smoothies and juicing. Smoothies require a blender to mix ingredients into a drinkable paste. By incorporating the entire fruit and vegetable, smoothies provide fiber along with other critical nutrients. Fiber in particular is helpful for controlling your blood sugar, keeping you full for longer, and feeding the good bacteria in your gut. The downside to fiber is that it inhibits the quick absorption of nutrients.

Juicing extracts liquid from fruits and vegetables. Because juicing does not extract fiber, the liquid provides  a healthy and immediate blast of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants for your cells.

Smoothies and juices have great nutritional benefits–each in their own way. Regardless of your choice, remember that a smoothie or a juice is healthiest when loaded with vegetables and contain about one serving of fruit.
