Raw Ginger & Sunflower Seed Nori Rolls

I found this recipe on ChoosingRaw.com, my favorite raw vegan blog, and I couldn’t resist adding it a snack item to the menu for my spring cleanse. The sunflower seed pate can be used as a dip for your veggies, a topping for your salad, or as a filler in the nori rolls as is shown here.

Gingery Sunflower Seed Pate (Raw, vegan, gluten free)
Yields about 1 1/2 cups
1 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, soaked for at least 1 hr
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp tahini
1 1/2 tbsp Bragg’s liquid aminos
1 tiny garlic clove, minced (optional)
1/4 tsp powdered ginger (more if you like the taste)
Black pepper to taste
Handful chopped scallions (optional)
Sheets of organic nori.

Place all ingredients in a food processor and run motor till it’s relatively smooth.

With motor running, drizzle in enough water for the pate to be thick, but easy to spread (careful not to add too much!).

Spread your ginger paste over the sheets of nori, and enjoy!

About Caley Alyssa

As a D-1 collegiate athlete with a background in nutrition and anatomy, and an internship with a naturopathic center for healing, I found myself wanting to help people achieve healthier, happier lives. I quickly came to realize that I wanted to work with preventative therapeutic methods promoting active, energetic lifestyles rather then focusing on treatment centered around prescription drugs and the increasingly paramount “band-aid” mindset. In 2006, I moved to San Francisco and began to study yoga completing a 200 hour training with Yoga Tree. From there I've studied with Shiva Rea and obtained a certification to work with children and at risk youth. In 2010, my quest to bring health and happiness to others lead me to enroll with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York to become a holistic health coach. Currently, I live in LA and am training with Dharma Mittra to obtain my 500 hour yoga certification. I love to share my lifelong journey of finding balance, wellness and happiness in all aspects of life!
