Nori Rolls with Tempeh and Veggies


I have been very surprised by how much I LOVE the food and recipes on the Ultimate Reset. If you have no idea what I’m talking about go check out my post on the Ultimate Reset here!

When I first saw Nori Rolls as my dinner option for Day 3 I was a little freaked out. I have never actually made sushi at home… but I do love sushi… with fish… that is. Tempeh? WTF is that? Well, it’s actually a fermented soybean cake, and it’s REALLY FREAKING GOOD. Step outside of your comfort zone and try these out. My roll totally failed and I ended up just eating them as tacos. Sometimes you gotta just improvise!


1/2 tsp. olive oil
1 strip smoky tempeh strips (I used Lightlife brand)
1 sheet nori seaweed (I used gimMe brand)
1/3 cup cooked brown rice
1/4 medium avocado, sliced
1/4 medium carrot, cut into matchstick-sized pieces
1/4 cucumber, cut into thin strips
1 1/2 tsp. nori gomasio (I used Eden brand)


1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat
2. Add tempeh and cook, stirring frequently for 2-3 minutes
3. Place nori on cutting board and top with rice, tempeh, avocado, carrot and cucumber. Sprinkle with nori gomasio
4. Roll nori, and wet end of nori to seal. Cut into 6 slices.

Double or tripe the recipe to make enough for the whole family. A great add on to this recipe is a Japanese cucumber salad (hint: recipe coming soon)
