I thought in honor of WIAW I’d share with you one of my
NEW FAVORITE EATS!
Ya’ll know that I LOVE my POWER-ROLLS
(hence the PowerPumpkin Roll that I’m super proud of!)
Lately, I’ve been trying to find different gluten free/grain free
ways to make POWER-ROLLS;
Then I came across,
NORI (Seaweed) WRAPS!!
FACTS about NORI:
Nori is a red seaweed from the genus Porphyra that is commonly used in the making of sushi.
Nori contains between 30 and 50 percent protein
and is fairly low in sodium because most of the salt is washed away during processing.
It is a good source of vitamin A, folate and niacin.
Fresh nori is a good source of vitamin C, but the shelf life for this nutrient after processing is fairly short.
A 2007 Venezuelan study published in the “Journal of Nutrition” stated that nori is a valuable source of iron for people eating rice-based meals and that,
unlike many grains and beans, it does not contain phytates, which can bind with other nutrients and slow down their absorption

Basically, I’m obsessed with using these to make
of all different varieties!
Here are a few of my favorites:
Garlic & Herb Goat Cheese with “Nooch” Tuna
*Spread the goat cheese on the wrap
*I added some leaf spinach
*Mixed tuna with nutritional yeast & Dijon Mustard
& added it on top of the spinach
*Roll Up the POWER-ROLL
*Cut into pieces with a SHARP KNIFE!
*I served mine up with some Cauliflower Mash
Canned Wild Alaskan Salmon
with Garlic & Herb Goat Cheese
I used my new purchase from Trader Joes!
*Layered it up the same way I did with the tuna power-roll!
*Served with Cauli Mash, duh.
*Served this one with Tuna + Dijon Mustard + Nooch
Smoked Salmon, Goat Cheese, & Red Onion
I am now obsessed with Trader Joe’s smoked salmon!
It is amazingggggg.
(felicia was right – we’re food twins)
*I layered this one with Goat Cheese, Spinach, Red Onion,
& SMOKED SALMON!
holyyy goodness this was so GOOD.
Hope you enjoy the different ideas for POWER-ROLLS!
Have you ever tried using seaweed as a “wrap” for a POWER-ROLL?
