These {raw, vegan, gluten-free} Sunrise Nori Wraps with Spicy Tahini Drizzle are absolute perfection!

About these nori wraps…

What do you get when you combine the most amazing, “to die for”, spicy tahini sauce with crisp and crunchy raw vegetables and creamy avocado all rolled up into a seaweed sheet? These {raw, vegan, gluten-free} Sunrise Nori Wraps with Spicy Tahini Drizzle, that are absolute perfection! 

I’m so excited to be sharing these super healthy {and addictive!} nori wraps-perfect for #MeatlessMonday- with you today, along with a cookbook from my food blogger friend Amie Valpone of The Healthy Apple.

Although Amie and I have never met in person, I feel like she is a kindred spirit. We both have used “food as medicine” to heal ourselves from chronic diseases {Lyme disease for Amie, Sjogren’s Syndrome and Fibromyalgia for me}, and we both share a positive, optimistic outlook on life, and a love for a whole-foods based diet, individual to each person’s needs.

I LOVE what Amie says about her cookbook and eating approach…

I’m not into labels. This isn’t about being a vegan, vegetarian, or flexitarian. If you want to come up with a name for what this is, knock yourself out, but the most important thing is to eat foods that make your body feel good.

Amie Valpone, The Healthy Apple

For Amie, the diet that has helped her deal from a decade of chronic illness, is a plant-based diet free from gluten, dairy, soy, refined sugar, eggs, corn, and processed ingredients, and you will discover just how delicious this diet can be in her cookbook, Eating Clean: The 21-Day Plan to Detox, Fight Inflammation, and Reset Your Body.

Eating Clean: The 21-Day Plan to Detox, Fight Inflammation, and Reset Your Body by Amie Valpone

Although the recipes {over 200!} are made anti-inflammatory foods, and free from common food allergens and sensitivities to support your body’s own detoxification systems, this is not a traditional “detox diet” where you drink only juice for several days {not a smart approach IMO}, but rather a sustainable diet, built around fresh, nourishing, and DELICIOUS plant-based foods.

Like the gorgeous colorful veggies used in these nori wraps…

Eat the rainbow with these fresh, nourishing, and delicious veggies!

And, these best part? You can make the tahini dressing, chop up the veggies, and wrap these babies up in 15 minutes or less. SO easy!

Tips on making these nori wraps…

If you like California rolls, you’ll love these nori wraps {though personally, I think they’re so much better!). The tahini dressing is truly addictive-you’re going to want to dress everything in it-and the cabbage provides a nice crunch. If possible, use a food processor to slice the cabbage so you can get it super thin. Also, make sure the vegetable strips are all the same width and length so that they don’t hang over the edges of the nori sheets; this will make rolling up the wraps easier. use leftover tahini drizzle as a dressing for salads or as a dip for crudités.

Amie Valpone

I can unequivocally agree with everything Amie says about these nori wraps, with one exception…

You will want to slather on double or triple the amount of this insanely addictive Spicy Tahini Drizzle, so BE SURE AND MAKE EXTRA!!!

Loaded with nourishing, anti-inflammatory foods, these Sunrise Nori Wraps w/ Spicy Tahini Drizzle are SO good AND good for you too! | Recipe is vegan and gluten-free.

In addition to these Sunrise Nori Wraps with Spicy Tahini Drizzle, some of these other simple, and delicious, plant-based recipes in Eating Clean include: Millet ‘n Veggie Breakfast Tacos, Costal Carrot Fettuccine with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Pumpkin Seeds, Golden Bell Pepper Soup, Basil and Mint Squash Noodles, Mini Baked Chickpea-Free Falafel with Cannellini Bean Za’atar Sauce, Easy Raw Chocolate Banana Tarts with a Grain-Free Pie Crust, and so many more!

Ingredients

Sunrise Nori Wraps

  • 4 nori seaweed sheets
  • 1/4 small head red cabbage very thinly sliced
  • 1 large carrot peeled and juliened
  • 1 small yellow summer squash julienned
  • 1 small cucumber julienned
  • 1 large ripe avocado pitted, peeled, and sliced
  • 1 recipe Spicy Tahini Drizzle

Spicy Tahini Drizzle

  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 1/4 tablespoons chickpea miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon raw tahini
  • 2 medjool dates pitted
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • Water as needed to thin the drizzle

Instructions

  • Place the nori sheets on a flat surface. Divide the cabbage, carrot, squash, cucumber, and avocado among the sheets. Top each pile of vegetables with a heaping tablespoon of the Spicy Tahini Drizzle, and the roll up the nori sheets into a tube shape.
  • Make the tahini: Combine all of the ingredients except the water in a blender. Blend, adding water 1 teaspoon at a time as you go, until the mixture becomes a thin sauce.

Notes

If possible, use a food processor to slice the cabbage so you can get it super thin. Also, make sure the vegetable strips are all the same width and length so that they don’t hang over the edges of the nori sheets; this will make rolling up the wraps easier. use leftover tahini drizzle as a dressing for salads or as a dip for crudités.
