Raw Nori Wraps



These are easy and yummy and a good way to detox after all that rich holiday food!  The pea guacamole is a lighter version of normal guac.

Pea Guacamole

8 oz of frozen peas, blanched and put in ice water
2 jalapenos
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 plum tomato
2 Tb nutritional yeast
2 cloves of garlic
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
Juice of 1 lime
1 avocado

 For the pea guacamole: Char one of the jalapenos over an open flame or under a broiler and then put in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap and let cool.  Once cool, rub off the charred skin of the jalapeno and seed and chop it.  Seed and chop the other fresh jalapeno too.  Put all the ingredients into a food processor and process til chunky.  Adjust seasonings to taste.

For the raw wraps:

Sheets of nori (found in the international aisle at the supermarket)
mellow white miso
assorted veggies julienned (I used red bell pepper, carrots, cabbage, cucumber, sprouts, scallions, de-stemmed kale)
sriracha sauce (optional)

Place a sheet of nori on a cutting board.  Add a smear of miso along the lower edge.  Add some pea guacamole.  Place the veggies over the pea-guac.  Add some dots of sriracha if desired.  Roll up from the bottom while squeezing to keep the roll tight.  Dab your finger in some water and run it along the top of the nori sheet to help seal it.  Cut the roll in half and enjoy :)

I got inspiration from this post at The Vegan Food Way, which is a great blog!
