Raw Vegan "Salmon" Nori Rolls

Geez I haven't posted here in forever! I thought it was high time to post something savoury. Ive been posting a lot of sweet stuff on Sweetly Raw but somehow its harder to take the time to photograph and post savoury recipes.

Here's an easy meal that I eat often for lunch. Raw vegan "salmon" pate sushi rolls. They're filling but light at the same time with all the veggies, and extremely satisfying. For ages I've loved nori rolls and I finally figured out why I like them so much. Every bite is the perfect bite. And I'm all about the perfect bite. No joke... most of my meals revolve around salads but everything has to be evenly combined so I get a bit of everything in every bite. A little obsessive compulsive? Uh yeah. But I like it that way, lol.

If you're eating this just as a pate, add some chopped celery to it. That makes it even better, but if using for nori rolls, the celery seems a little to chunky even when chopped small. 

Raw Vegan Salmon Pate

Scant 1 cup roughly chopped peel carrots*
1 cup walnuts**
1/2 cup sunflower seeds, soaked 30 minutes
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon tamari
1 teaspoon ground kelp
1/2 teaspoon himalayan salt
3 tablespoons chopped green onion
4-5 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

Grind the sunflower seeds in a food processor. 
Add the carrots, walnuts, acv, lemon, tamari, kelp and salt. Process until smooth, scraping the sides of the food processor down periodically. 
Pulse in the onion and dill. 

*It only takes a second but do it! It makes a "cleaner" taste. 
**Optimally soaked and dehydrated first.

Faux Salmon Sushi Rolls

Spread the salmon pate on the 2/3 of a nori sheet.
Top the part closest to you with zucchini noodles, lettuce, cucumber and red pepper strips, and avocado.
Tightly roll up, rolling away from you. Brush the end with water before sealing.
Keeping the seal side down, slice the roll with a sharp knife.
Serve with coconut aminos or tamari.

I've finally joined instagram! Im having fun with it hehe. You can find me HERE. Here are just a few instagram pics.

  1. That is cool, I will definetely try it!!! I was thinking about veggie sushi and the idea with carrot, kelp and nuts.... Great:-)

  2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! Don't think you can trick me away from that with delicious fake salmon ;)

  3. fantastic idea - bookmarking - have just made celery salt recently and wonder if some of that might give the celery flavour without the chunk (esp as I don't have himalayan salt)

    1. Thanks Johanna! Celery salt is a great idea, so cool that you made your own!!!

  4. Wow Heather this look so good! I have been craving sushi like mad too. How did you know??

  5. I love the look of the veggie meatballs. What dehydrator do you recommend??
