Feeling a bit overindulged with regards to food, after the holidays? Not me. *snicker, snicker* Being vegan, there’s really only a handful of edible items at a normal party. They mostly include, well…salad.

No need to go on a juice fast or drink wheat grass shots for three days straight. I promise. Please don’t do that.Yep, trick your taste buds while sneaking your way back into healthy eating in delicious style. These Easy Fusion Nori Veggie Wraps are super quick, foolproof and downright tasty. Packed full of fresh veggies, with super nutrient nori seaweed, a little protein power from hummus and a wee bit of sweetness from hoisin sauce, they are sure to be a hit.
And so colorful too! What a great little meal to ring in the new year with.
Easy Fusion Nori Veggie Wraps
Makes 3 wraps (serves 2)
- 3 Nori seaweed sheets (same used for sushi)
- 1/2 cup hummus
- 1 1/2 Tbsp. hoisin sauce
- a few handfuls of fresh spinach
- 1/2 cup red cabbage, thinly sliced and chopped
- 1/2 large carrot, peeled
- 1/2 avocado, pitted and sliced
- small handful of cilantro, chopped
–Notes– Feel free to add or substitute any additional fresh veggies you like!
First, collect and prep all the veggies and the cilantro.
Then, lay one sheet of nori in a landscape position, so the shiny side is down and put a dollop of hummus on the side closest to you. Spread it from left to right, so it’s even, then spread about 1/2 Tbsp. of hoisin sauce over the hummus. Next, spread a tiny bit on the opposite side. This will help the wrap stay rolled up.
Place your desired amount of spinach on top of the hummus, followed by portions of the remaining ingredients. Be sure not to pile it on too much or the wrap could break when it’s rolled. I’ve never, ever done this… Now, roll it up away from you and voila! You have yourself a nori wrap.
Slice on the diagonal and eat up! Here’s to a healthy and happy new year! Maybe even a slightly vegan new year, perhaps?
