These magical Rainbow Nori Wraps are all you need to commence the weekend on a clean-eating, healthy, whole plant food kick start. Eating a diet rich in colorful plants is one of the best things you can do for your health. The more color you add, the more antioxidants you’ll get!

 Emerald Cove makes a great Pacific Nori – available at Whole Foods.


Place veggies and other fillings (rice, quinoa, tofu) on the nori sheet. Be careful not to overload, nori is delicate. Sprinkle some seeds and drizzle a little Ginger Tahini Sauce. Roll ‘er up, dip and party on!

Suggested Veggies for Wraps:

  • 1/4 head red cabbage
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 beet
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 kale leaves (dino works best)
  • handful of microgreens
  • 1 avocado
  • 3-4 nori sheets and/or rice paper sheets
  • 1 Tbsp hemp seeds or sesame seeds
  • *to make a more filling wrap, add jasmine brown rice, quinoa, brown rice noodles, pan seared tofu, etc.

Ginger Tahini Sauce: 

  • 3 scallions, white and light green parts only, minced
  • 1 Tbsp Miso (any color) or Tamari
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp tahini
  • Juice from one lime (about 1 Tbsp)
  • 1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1/2 Tbsp crushed red pepper flakes or Sriracha


To prepare dressing:

  • Whisk all ingredients together until smooth and well-combined.
  • A food processor or blender will also work.
  • Taste the dressing and adjust seasonings to desired spiciness, etc.

To make wraps:

  • Slice desired vegetables (except for red cabbage) into long, thin matchsticks.
  • Shred red cabbage.
  • Tear up the kale leaves and slice the avocado.
  • Lay your desired fillings on one side of your nori sheet.
  • On the other side, spread a little sauce to seal together the ends when you’re ready to roll it up.
  • Sprinkle with some hemp or sesame seeds, and drizzle on some more sauce.
  • Roll, dip in some sauce and enjoy!

Note: Nori is very delicate, so start with a smaller amount of fillings and do a roll test run, to be sure the nori doesn’t tear.


Happy Friday, y’all!
