Simple Raw Nori Wraps with Beet Dipping Sauce

Simple Raw Nori Wraps with Beet Dipping Sauce

Nori Wraps

These raw nori wraps are as fresh as they look and the best part is that they are so simple.

The beet dipping sauce look so stunning, with a taste to match.  I love the sharpness of the capers in there, it’s just so prefect with the basil leaves in the nori wraps themselves.

I’ve used pea shoots as the main greens in these rolls, but you can use any small salad leaf that takes your fancy.  If you’re making these in the morning to take to work or out and about with you, to eat after a few hours, it’s important the greens are dry, so they won’t cause the nori to split.

Nori Wraps for Lunch

If you wanted to make these a little more ‘meaty’ you could put some marinated mushrooms in there.  You could use the marinated mushrooms from this recipe.  Those mushrooms are dehydrated, but you don’t have to do that step if you don’t want to.

Is Nori Nutritious?

I like to think of any seaweed as a sea vegetable, so in that sense, yes, they are very nutritious.  They are full of minerals, such as calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium and zinc.

Is Nori Vegetarian?

Yes!  Nori is vegan and vegetarian.  In fact in can be a place where vegans and vegetarians can get some of the nutrients that are only available in fish and a few other places.

How Many Calories Are in Nori Wraps?

You’ll see below that each nori wrap has just xx calories.  The nori is such a great wrap alternative, because it’s full of vitamins, but yet has very little calorie content.

    Dear Russell,
    Just a heads up, on the video you use miso to make the beet dipping sauce whereas it is not mention on the recipe.

    I enjoyed eaten this…I have a question regarding seaweed. With the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster leaking into the Ocean – are there other location to source Nori flat sheets from … other from Asia? I have a hard time finding anything on the internet. Thanks, Michael.

    Love all of your recipe ideas…so fresh!!! Just want to make sure, whenever you call for nuts in a recipe, should I assume they are soaked?

      Not all of them, no. You should always soak nuts with skins on, such as almonds, but nuts without skins don’t necessarily need soaking unless you want to make them easier to blend.

    Wonderful recipe suggestions, Russell. I frequently make my own substitutions as like many others nowadays there are some food components I’m sensitive to such as casein, gluten, and lemons & oranges, plus I prefer to use the more alkalizing foods and seasonings.

    Can’t wait for more of your great ideas and beautiful photos. Thank you.

    This was gorgeous!  I just shared this with my Man (who is not yet convinced in raw food as he watching my transition first), however, we both loved it!  Just happened I had a beet in the fridge that needed to be used and rest was a “kitchen staple”.  The sauce is a lovely color against the nori rolls and the greens go perfect with the flavor.  I added a tsp of garlic puree and avocado fresh salad greens from my garden to the sprouts…I give a ***** rating!  THANK YOU chef 🙂

    I have a question: I am interested to buy the series e-book, however, when the raw nut cheese came out I bought it and I rather not have two of the same. What option can I have if I purchase the series? thanks
