Gluten Free Nori Power Wraps Recipe

Don’t worry if you’re not perfect at rolling these the first time; it can take some practice. What I like about this recipe is its versatility. The ingredients can be swapped to your preference, but the ones below pack a great nutritional punch and are superfoods!

Nori – The “superfood of the sea,” nori is a seaweed that is dried into sheets. It puts almost all the other superfoods to shame, containing up to 10 times more calcium than milk! In addition, it is rich in iodine, iron, vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and K, folic acid, taurine, and niacin. Usually seen wrapped around sushi and light in flavor, don’t assume this power-packed wrap is super fishy tasting!

Watercress – Interestingly enough, among the CDC’s ranking of Powerhouse Vegetables, watercress is number one! Among many others, it contains more vitamin C than an orange, and quadruple the amount of beta-carotene and vitamin A than apples, tomatoes, and even broccoli.

Avocados – You must live in a hole if you haven’t heard about the amazing avocado! High in “good” fats, this delicious staple is also high in vitamin B, potassium, and lutein. Many people used to shy away from them because of the fat content, but science has proven that a balanced diet containing unsaturated-fat-rich foods like avocados can help lower bad cholesterol.

Ingredients
  • 4 large sheets of nori
  • 6 tablespoons hummus
  • 1 medium cucumber peeled, seeded, and sliced into matchsticks
  • 1 medium carrot peeled and sliced into matchsticks
  • 1 large avocado thinly sliced
  • 1 cup watercress or other light greens
  • 4 ounces protein of choice shredded chicken, smoked salmon, quinoa
  • Juice of 1 small lemon
  • Kosher or fine sea salt to taste
Instructions
  1. Lay a sheet of nori shiny-side down on a flat work surface. Spread 1-2 tablespoons of hummus in a thin layer gently on the nori. This will help everything stick. On top of the hummus, place about ¼ of each of your ingredients, beginning with the cucumbers and carrots (this forms structure).
  2. Drizzle some fresh lemon juice on top and sprinkle with a little sea salt. Roll the nori sheet slowly and tightly. (You can use a sushi mat if you have one to make a tighter roll.) When you get to the end, use a little bit of water to seal the nori wrap together. Repeat with the remaining nori sheets.
