Recipes

Veggie Nori Burritos- Serves 2

1-2 tablespoons of tahini

2 sheets toasted nori

1 cup cooked brown rice

1 avocado, sliced

1 medium tomato

6-8 large romaine lettuce or spinach leaves, sliced into 

       thin strips

a handful of sunflower sprouts

1-2 tablespoons olive oil

2 pinches of sea salt

Spread a thin layer of tahini onto each nori sheet. Place half the rice in the center of each sheet. Add the avocado, tomato, greens, and sprouts on top of the rice. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Roll the nori into a cone shape by wrapping the ends around the filling. Seal the end by licking your fingers to dampen the edge and create a seal. 

Veggie Pesto Pasta- Serves 4

1 cup sun-dried tomatoes

4 cups vegetables- 3 or 4 different kinds

2 tablespoons, plus 1/4 cup olive oil

sea salt and black pepper to taste

1 package brown rice spaghetti

1 cup Italian parsley

1 cup fresh basil leaves

2 small garlic cloves

1/2 cup raw cashews

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Preheat the oven to 400 F. In a medium bowl, cover the sun-dried tomatoes with water. Julienne the 4 cups of veggies, place them in a large baking dish, and toss well with 2 tablespoons olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Bake for about 30 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes. While the veggies are in the oven, cook the spaghetti according to the instructions on the package, timing the cooking to coincide with the completion of the veggies. While the veggies and spaghetti are cooking, drain and thinly slice the sun-dried tomatoes. Then, to make the pesto, put the parsley, basil, garlic, cashews, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 cup olive oil in a food processor or blender and puree. Rinse and rain the spaghetti and toss with the pesto and tomatoes. Place the veggies on top.
