Recently, I came across two items that I had never noticed at our grocery store before; raw, organic nori and wakame seaweed.
Seaweed has never been a staple in my vegan diet in the past but something about them caught my eye during this trip to the grocery store and I went ahead and tossed them in my cart.
That afternoon, I set out to create a raw vegan dish that could get me excited about eating seaweed. (Note: I recommend the brand, Maine Coast Sea Vegetables for your sea vegetable purchases.)
Looking through the refrigerator, I came across the final remains of produce from my recent trip to the local farmers market the previous weekend.
I had 1 large red bell pepper, a deliciously juicy cucumber, an heirloom tomato, a red hot jalapeno pepper and a bag of tender baby spinach.
I sliced the cucumber in strips with my julienne peeler and combined the rest of those mouth-watering ingredients in my food processor. Then I tossed it all together in a bowl and mixed in the wakame seaweed, a handful of pumpkin seeds, an avocado and a few splashes of Coconut Aminos.
I wrapped all of that goodness into several of my raw nori wraps and found myself amazed at how simple, yet delicious this quick little recipe turned out to be. I will lay out the recipe below and hope you will find this to be a welcome addition to your arsenal of raw, vegan recipes:
