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

Even while maintaining a healthy diet, we still may need the additional support provided by a multi-vitamin. Many of the conventional foods we eat are grown in soil with depleted nutrients. Similarly, our body’s gut may be suffering an impaired ability to break down and absorb what nutrients our food does provide. We may also have developed various Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNP) on our genes that prevent our metabolic pathways from working optimally. A multi-vitamin can provide extra daily support to make sure your cells are getting the vitamins and minerals they need to work their best. Still, the only way to know what vitamins and minerals your body may be deficient in is through blood work. Work with Sally to make sure your nutrients are at optimal levels.
