Kansas Rolls

I’m not really sure how California Rolls got their name but as long as the taste good I guess it doesn’t really matter. I’m not from California and I’m not a huge fan of the popular dish. But I am from Kansas and I have dietary restrictions that don’t allow me to each certain things, like California Rolls. So here’s my take on the Asian dish. These rolls are gluten, grain, soy and seafood free. They are very light, yet filling. Plus the nori wraps provide a great deal of iodine and other nutrients! Makes 4 servings

4 toasted nori sheets
1/4 cup water
1 avocado, mashed
1 cup cauliflower rice, cooked
1 tsp coconut aminos (or other soy sauce alternative)
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp fresh chives, finely chopped
1/2 tsp cilantro
Additional coconut aminos/soy sauce for serving

  • Lay a nori sheet onto a large cutting board. Spread a thin layer of avocado over sheet, leaving about 1/4 inch of nori sheet on each side.
  • In a small bowl, combine cauliflower, coconut aminos, ginger, sesame oil, salt, pepper, chives and cilantro. Spread a thin layer of cauliflower mixture onto avocado.
  • Gently roll up, securing edges with a little water onto nori sheet. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Cut each roll it about 1″ pieces and serve with additional coconut aminos.
