Vegan Salad Roll: So Easy You Can Make At Home!

by jem614

By Jessica Michael

This little caterpillar-looking roll is a vegan salad roll available at many fine sushi restaurants (and Publix stores!).  These are my new favorite, I can’t get enough of them and at only about 130-180 calories for two rolls, they are a great snack or addition to any meal.  I actually had them for a pre-lunch snack and then proceeded to snarf down a 10 piece-brown rice veggie roll which topped out at around 400 calories for both (it was a huge meal for so little calories).

Publix offers their salad rolls with a duck sauce but I’m partial to ordinary-ol’ soy sauce.  This wrap is vegan and gluten-free because it’s made of tapioca; a sticky, thin wrap around slices of just-ripe avocado, red cabbage, carrots, cucumber and lettuce.  You can certainly make them at home fairly easily and bring them to work with you or have as a late night snack (this is a no-cheat wonder).  *Note that there is a warning that some tapioca wraps are mixed with wheat so please check ingredients before buying.

I wish I had a better picture for you but my Nikon is hanging on the back of the bedroom closet door waiting for batteries that I keep forgetting to buy.

The only downside to this little wonder is that it’s a bit pricey at $5 for just vegetables but again, you can probably make twenty of them at home for the same price (although I don’t think they will keep that long).  I found some online and it seems that you can probably find the wrappers at an Asian grocery somewhere in your neighborhood.  If you want to buy them online, here is a link to Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Spring-wrappers-paper-Erawan-brand/dp/B000F3NQKS.

Go Vegan One Day a Week: Martha Stewart’s Whole Living Readers Urged

I love reading Whole Living – their clean and simple recipes are easy to make and can make excellent weeknight meals. They have had several e-mail blasts lately about vegan and vegetarian recipes, but today was the first e-mail I’ve seen actually urging readers to adopt a vegan diet at least one day per week. The most astonishing thing is that the poll associated with the article had over 95% of readers saying they would absolutely be interested in doing it. Granted – they all clicked on the article, so they are already interested in vegan recipes and it was only 30 or so respondents, but it is a great start.

I’m impressed, Whole Living! Keep up the good work!
