Hemp seed nori rolls...

Another fun and yummy way to use nut-seed pâtés is to make nori rolls.  Nori rolls are a great snack, appetizer, or a meal on their own when accompanied by a mixed green salad.  Sea vegetables are incredibly rich sources of vitamins and minerals.  Nori is particularly rich in iodine, magnesium, calcium, sodium, iron, folic acid, zinc, copper and selenium.

Nut-seed nori roll
1 nori sheet
1/3 cup nut-seed pâté (today I'm using sundried tomato basil hemp seed pâté)
1/3 cucumber sliced in long thin spears
2 handfuls of spinach 
any other veggies you like: avocado, carrots, sprouts, red pepper, etc.

Lay the nori sheet on a bamboo sushi roller or flat surface.  Spread the hemp seed pâté on one third of the nori sheet.  Cover with a layer of spinach.  Place cucumber slices and any other veggies you're using down the center.  Roll as tightly as you can, wetting the end of the nori sheet so that it sticks to itself.  Use a very sharp, damp knife to slice in 1/2 inch thick pieces.  To complete the meal, serve with a simple mixed green and cherry tomato salad drizzled with balsamic vinegar and topped with freshly cracked pepper.

Bon appétit, mon ami!
