This is one of the best raw sushi recipes we’ve come across. Grinding raw almonds with garlic and herbs to make a nut “rice” is an ingenious idea. With this recipe, you can excite your taste buds with food that seems like it isn’t actually raw (even though it is). If you have certain raw vegetables that you want to add inside the roll, go ahead and include it in the mix.
- Prep Time: 15m
- Total Time: 15m
- 2 nori sheets
- 1 c raw almonds, soaked for about an hour
- 1/2 avocado, thinly sliced
- 1 small carrot, shaven/shredded/julienned
- 2 green onions, split lengthwise
- a handful of sunflower, alfalfa, or whatever sprouts you enjoy
- 1 small cucumber, sliced lengthwise
- a few dashes of liquid aminos
- other fresh veggies of your choice (optional)
- Have a very sharp knife and a small bowl/cup of water ready to wet your fingers and the knife as necessary.
- Grind up your soaked raw almonds with 1 clove garlic, sea salt, and pepper to further enhance flavors. Adding a few drops of water to the blender while the nuts are mixing helps them stick somewhat.
- Take half of the nut \"rice\" and pack it down firmly and evenly on the nori sheets with the back of a spoon.
- Layer the vegetable shreds/slices you\'re using and top them with some sprouts. Ready to roll?
- Dip your fingers in water and dampen the upper 1-inch edge of a sheet and carefully, lifting the other edge while holding down your pile of ingredients, start rolling it as tightly as you can manage. The wet end will serve as a seal. Make sure to press that edge against the other surface. Put this roll aside and repeat the roll-up procedure with the other.
- Wet your sharpest kitchen knife and either slice the rolls into about 1-inch thick bites or cut them in halves diagonally.
- Add a few dashes of liquid aminos to add a little more flavor.
