Sushi! (not the fish and rice kind, this is much more gorgeous)

I absolutely adore these little maki rolls, I could happily eat them everyday. The 'rice' is made with parnsips and pine nuts (trust me, it works), and the nori is the raw untoasted kind. Really quick to make, healthy and delicious. Better than the 'real' alternative in my opinion. Seriously, you should try this.


For the rice:
2 big parsnips
Third of a cup of pine nuts
1 dessert spoon of apple cider vinegar

Avocado or cucumber or whatever else takes your fancy really.

Raw untoasted nori sheets

Peel and chop the parsnips, then blitz them in a food processor, with the pine nuts, until they get to a rice like texture. 
Stir in the apple cider vinegar.
Finely slice the avocado and chop the cucumber into thin sticks.
Take a sheet of nori and spread the parsnip rice on it, about a third of the way up. 
Then put a row of avocado or cucumber or whatever filling you're using along this.
Roll it up, quite tightly, and moisten the edge with water to help it stick together. 
Then just slice the roll into little bite sized pieces.
This amount made enough to fill 3 nori sheets when I did it earlier. 

I made a really good dip to go with them, which was a combo of tamari (wheat free soy sauce), sesame oil and a bit of chilli powder. Just shook it all up together in a jar. Turned out extremely well :) Enjoy!
