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

Often times we read the label and aren’t sure what we are looking at or what numbers are “good.” The best way to read a label is to first look at the serving size, which tells us the amount we would need to eat to equal the rest of the nutrients on the label. It is important to be aware of the serving size listed, because they range from 1.5 ounces for a favorite cookie to one-tenth of a pound for raw kale. Next read the Percent Daily Value on the label’s right side. The percentages in that column tell you what percentage of the recommended daily nutrients you get after eating one serving size. For example, if a serving size of your favorite snack is a whopping one pretzel, and the percent daily value for sodium is 41%, then each pretzel you eat gives you 41% of the recommended daily intake for sodium. Two pretzels gives you 82%. Three pretzels gives you 123% and so on.

A convenient way to look at percent daily values is to follow the 5-20 rule; 5% or less is considered low, while 20% or more is considered high.
