Nori Wrap with Lemon Myrtle Miso Sauce 

(4 serves/prepping time: 45min / cooking time: 30 min)

Nori Wrap 

  • 4 sheets of nori (seaweed)
  • 1 cup of cooked brown quinoa rice
  • 1 cup of mixed vegetables of your choice, such as spinach, lettuce, cucumber, and carrots which can be dried on a paper towel, or simply buy a salad packet and wash and dry!
  • 1 cup of your favourite protein such as eggs, meat, fish, or tofu, or use left-over steak or roast chicken can save your prep time!

Lemon Myrtle Miso Sauce 

  • 1 small piece or knob of fresh ginger
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic
  • ¼ small-sized pear peeled
  • ½~1 tbsp of white miso paste (GMO-free soybeans miso without barley)
  • 1 tbsp of local honey (option – if allergic, choose coconut sugar)
  • 1 tbsp of tahini paste (option – if allergic, choose cold pressed extra virgin olive oil)
  • ¼ ~ ½ of fresh lemon/lime juice
  • 2 tbsp of filtered water if possible if not boiled and cool it down
  • 1 heaped tsp of ground lemon myrtle powder

Direction 

  1. Wash rice and cook it
  2. Prepare vegetables (wash veggies and cut them in finely or simply use a salad pack, and dry them properly)
  3. Prepare your protein (cut left-over meat in small sizes, make an omelette, fry tofu, or use tinned foods – it is up to you, but suggest not to make it saucy)
  4. Place the Nori sheet on a flat surface and use a scissor to cut halfway but not all the way. Imagine the Nori sheet has 4 squares and each square you fill with rice, veggies, and protein.
  5. Start folding nori sheets to make nori wrap and secure them with bee wax wrap or cling wrap to maintain the shape, and leave it in the fridge while you are making your sauce
  6. Use a mortar and pestle or blender, start with garlic, ginger, and pear to be crushed, or mixed well then add other wet ingredients and finish with ground lemon myrtle powder to mix well.
  7. You can cut Nori wrap in half or just like that on the plate after removing the cover, garnish with sauce and voila!
