My hubz and I have been craving sushi for awhile now, however as well all know that because of the rice it can take a little extra time to prep- making this not a spur of the moment dish. However, if you have some pecans on hand suddenly rice is replaced with pecan pate and if anything is even more delicious!
My favorite recipe for this comes from http://glivng.com and is Vanessa Sherwood’s Recipe
with Pecan Paté, Spicy Miso, and Fresh Veggies (raw)
(http://gliving.com/nori-rolls-with-pecan-pate/) by GreenChef Vanessa Sherwood
For the pecan paté:
Place the pecans into a food processor. Process until you have small crumbs. Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse chop in.
For the Rolls:
Spread 1 teaspoon of the spicy miso on a sheet of nori. Smear 2-3 tablespoons of the pate evenly across the bottom third of the nori sheet leaving 1 inch of nori sheet exposed at the bottom. Top with cucumber(or sprouts) , red bell pepper and avocado slices. Make sure to lay the sliced vegetables horizontally to make the rolling easier.
Fold the bottom of the sheet up and over the ingredients tucking the edge under the ingredients and roll all the way up. Before you get to the end, you may want to moisten the top edge of the nori sheet with a little water and then roll shut. This will keep it from opening up.
Cut the roll in half (or in bite sized pieces) and put on a plate. Serve with some nama shoyu mixed with wasabi powder if desired.
