Both kids and adults love these simple gluten-free rolls that can be made in minutes. Ingredient tip: Look for seaweed sheets in the Asian section of your natural foods market. If you're avoiding dairy, choose a vegan cream cheese—we like Follow Your Heart's Gourmet Vegan Cream Cheese.
This recipe makes about 12 rolls.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
2 nori seaweed sheets
16-20 spinach leaves, washed and patted dry
1 (4-ounce) package thinly sliced smoked salmon
3 tablespoons cream cheese, plus a little more for sealing (or Follow Your Heart's Vegan Gourmet Cream Cheese)
1 small carrot, sliced into matchsticks
½ small cucumber, sliced into matchsticks
Gluten-free tamari (or soy sauce), for dipping
Lay nori sheets on a dry, flat work surface. Lay spinach leaves in a single layer over the nori, leaving a ½-inch gap at the top of each sheet. Allow about a ½ inch or so of the leaves to hang over side edges for a decorative effect.
About 1 inch from the bottom of each sheet, lay salmon in a horizontal row on top of spinach. Spread cream cheese over salmon. Thinly slice avocado; just above salmon, arrange avocado in a horizontal row. Make a row of matchstick carrots and cucumber just above avocado.
Spread a thin layer of cream cheese across the top ½ inch of each nori sheet to help seal. Starting from the bottom, roll each sheet snugly to make a long, tight roll. Slice into 1-inch pieces with a sharp, serrated knife. Dip and eat.
