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!
Choose a rainbow of colorful veggies. Don’t hold back. Go nuts.
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!
