Zippy "tuna" Rolls (Raw Foods)

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by mliss29

From Alive in 5 by Angela Elliot. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks yummy! Posted for the Veg*n Recipe Swap. (I think I've read that the Himalayan and Celtic salts used in many Raw Recipes are a bit less "salty" than regular table salt, so I would salt with caution and to taste.)

My husband and I enjoyed this, but the flavor of the sunflower seeds was pretty strong and the mixture was very wet, which made it difficult to roll in the nori. I added cucumber and avocado slices. It was fun to try a different take on veggie sushi. Thanks for posting this! Made for Veggie Swap, January 2010.
