Vegan Raw Sushi Recipe :) Super Simple!!

Yep! You guessed right, we also strive to eat 50% Raw Vegan Organic Whole Foods :)  Its simply the best tasting and filling meals we've had :) Plus it keeps us super healthy and vibrant :)  (Tx JeffyPoo for asking for some recipes! I'll be sure to post several in your honor!)
What you'll need for one roll :)
1/2 Avocado
Lemon Juice (few drops)
Swiss Chard (2 small leafs with stems)
Celery (1 stem, thinly sliced)
Cherry Tomatoes (5 li'l ones)
Garlic Chives
Liquid Amino Acids (Soy Sauce Substitution)

Slice thin layers of Avacado...
Chop up Basil...

Liquid Aminos can be purchased at most Health Food Stores.  It taste very similar to soy sauce because its made out of soy beans as well!  We use it on most of our dishes...

Raw Nori isn't as easy to find and can be super expensive...  If you're a 110% Raw Vegan and need the Raw stuff you can find it at erewhon or rawvolution.
Call in advanced one store may have it on sale :)
Wakame can be purchased at Whole Foods.

Lay your nori paper on a flat surface, (make sure to place your veggies closer to one edge of the nori paper!!) add the swiss chard, sliced cherry tomatoes, celery, avocado, chopped basil, slice of onion, sprinkle wakame, add a few drops of lemon juice and liquid amino acids.

Once you have all your ingredients aligned beautifully :)  Its finally time to roll :)  Don't be afraid of the nori & the veggies, pretend that you're about to roll a burrito :)  Okay okay it may take you a few tries, but imagine the future sushi creations you'll be making YUM!!  :)  oh and I almost forgot...  to seal the roll, dab your finger with some lemon juice and run it along the edge.  Hold the roll in place for a few seconds...
And Wala!  You got yourself a very simple Vegan Raw Sushi Roll :)

One of best parts of growing your own food is that we can make these all the time in just a few minutes!  It sure beats cooking an entire meal :)
