I never thought that making veggie rolls would be so easy. I love sushi! I truly am crazy about it but I don’t eat it that often because I find the rice really heavy so I decided to give it a try and make my own. When I bought the nori sheets I realised that they contain traces of sea fish. Of course, what was I thinking? After all they come from the bottom of the sea. Anyway, I do not consider that a problem. As per my understanding the only traces of animals on the nori sheets are from being in contact with fish but no harm is caused to any animals. So I went ahead and decided to create a veggie version with no rice and just vegetables! This veggie rolls are super yummy, fresh and colourful. Great to take to work for lunch but also really nice as a starter to share with friends.
I used hummus as a way to stick everything together and then I toped with some cucumber for freshness, carrot for crunchiness, avocado to make it soft and creamy in the middle and finally some watercress for extra green and colour. Yum! I hope you love them.
Makes 12-14 small rolls
watercress to spread
- You can either cut the carrot into very thin batons or grate it. The same for the cucumber. I find it easier to cut it in thin slices.
- Place your nori sheet with the shiny side facing down.
- Spread the hummus sparingly till the edges.
- Place the carrot on top of the hummus leaving a space in the end. Then add the cucumber on top of the carrot and finish by topping with the avocado in one of the extremities.
- Spread some watercress on top and you are ready to roll.
- Start by rolling from the extremity where the avocado is and roll it slowly and gently but with a firm hand, applying some pressure while you roll it.
- Dunk it in some tamary sauce if you like. Enjoy!
