ushi is a fun way to spice up your mealtimes, and it’s simpler to make than you’d think. It’s so simple that you can make these vegetarian nori rolls with kids—it’s an easy way to sneak healthy vegetables into their diet. We’ve added marinated tofu for a protein boost to balance the light rice and raw vegetables. Nori seaweed forms the nutritious shell of these tasty sushi rolls. Seaweed contains health benefits such as high protein and mineral content, natural iodine, and more vitamin C than oranges. Nori sushi is a complete meal in a single roll. Have fun with these sushi rolls: serve at a party or as a light meal alternative. Experiment with your own ingredients, and please let us know your favorite vegetarian sushi fillings in the comments below.
