Wawiii it’s SUSHI time. This sushi is actually quite easy to make, although it might look like something that takes a whole lot of time to prepare. It’s filled with goodness and wrapped with nori paper, which is actually dried seaweed. Seaweed has a lot of health benefits that you might not know of – including being rich in protein, lowering cholesterol, lowering cancer risk, being high in iron, high in dietary fiber, improving bone health and having an impressive iodine content (an extremely important mineral). If you want to know more about this, you can read here and here. It’s actually a superfood!
Quinoa sushi (2 people):
- 1 dl quinoa
- 4 carrots (organic)
- 1/1 avocado
- 1/2 mango
- Nori paper (found in any store that sells sushi kits)
- Bamboo rolling mat (found in any store that sells sushi kits)
- Paprika spice
- Himalayan salt
- Chili oil (from Oliviers & Co)
We added the carrot fries from this recipe as we had some left over, so you should start by preparing them as they take about 20 minutes to get done. After that, continue by cooking the quinoa with the double amount of water. Let it boil for only a few minutes, and then reduce the heat to let it simmer. Bring some flavor to it by adding some himalaya salt and paprika spice.
Slice the avocado and mango into thin pieces. When everything is ready, you are prepared to assemble the sushi roll. This could be a bit tricky, so it’s useful to put on a youtube tutorial if you are having problems, because it’s a little difficult to explain through text.
