The first few days of April I completed a five day juice cleanse and then another several days of juicing and mostly raw foods.
For several lunches I made my ginger-cashew nori rolls, using whatever fillings I found in my produce drawers. There are two rolls in the photos – a mango roll (um, yum) and a pepper-bean roll. So so good.
And so so simple. Really.
Jason and I have a few favorite sushi restaurants we frequent (one has confirmed vegan miso, and all of them make me fantastic veggie rolls), and the one thing we always bring with us? These little fish with gluten free soy sauce. If we forget it, Jason is already feeling before dinner is done – he is even more gluten intolerant than I am.
So we love Little Soya because it is gluten free, but just as important is the amazing flavor. The reason we keep buying Little Soya and the reason I am going on and on about it today, this is the best tasting soy sauce I have ever had. Not even kidding – and this is just me saying so, and wanting everyone to taste this because it’s so good.
Can I say umami? Because that is what comes to mind when I try to describe the flavor – it is so much richer and deeper in flavor than any other soy sauce or gluten free alternative I have tried.
It is so good with these nori rolls…
ginger-cashew nori rolls
dairy, egg, and gluten free, vegan, raw
makes 2 full rolls (sliced into 6 pieces each)
3/4 cup raw cashews
3/4 inch ginger, peeled and minced fine*
1/2 tablespoon rice vinegar
2 sheets dried nori seaweed
veggies of choice (sliced mango, bell pepper, green beans)
sesame seeds for garnish
*adjust amount to taste
In food processor, pulse cashews, ginger and rice vinegar to a paste. Carefully spread an even layer onto nori sheets. Line the filling vegetables along one edge, roll tightly. Using a sharp knife, cut each roll in half, then cut each half into three equal sized pieces (cleaning knife after each cut).
Arrange on serving plate, sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Serve with Little Soya gluten free soy sauce!
Have you ever seen these cute fish? If you are interested in Little Soya, you can find it at these stores, and I buy it at my local grocery store. If you are looking for gluten free and low sodium, I definitely recommend it!
