Riceless Nori Wraps

If you’re looking for  a packed lunch, something to bring to a picknick or even take on a plane, this one might be something for you. It’s fairly easy to prepare, super delicious and will keep you full for a good while.

The cool thing about this recipe is that it’s basically two in one, because instead of rice I decided to make sunflower seed rice, which is super delicious and nutritious. You can make the sunflower seed rice just on its own and serve it as a risotto with some cooked veggies and nutritional yeast on top.

  2. Blend until a smooth cream forms. Set aside
  3. Add the the remaining sunflower seeds together with the vegetable broth and bring to a boil, now let it simmer until all the water has dissolved, it will take about 30 mins.
