So what's the natural solution, you ask?! One (magical!) word...IODINE! Iodine is a vital nutrient that our bodies need, but are unable to produce on their own. Iodine is not found in many foods at ALLLLL, so most people opt to take it in supplement form. But real food is always better, as you all know! Which is where this monologue comes to a point, finally...nori, kelp, dulse, and other sea vegetables are the ONLY natural, vegan, supplement-free way to get iodine! So, basically, this is the reason behind my "Sushi Sunday" theme...I hope you'll all join me in sushi creating (not only on Sundays!), and that you enjoy the recipes I'll be sharing. Happy sushi-ing!
Peanut Butter "SauerSPROUT" Sushi. Vegan, gluten-free. Serves one.
1. One nori sheet
2. 4 T peanut butter of choice
3. 1/2 cup sprouts
4. 1/4 cup sauerkraut
5. 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1. One of the best things about sushi, besides the taste? Fill. Roll. Cut. Eat. Done! It's so simple! For this roll, simply spread your PB over the nori sheet and top with WASHED and dried sprouts (wash carefully! Sprouts are known to carry bacteria--buy organic if possible).
2. In a small bowl, mix sauerkraut with ground ginger, and add on top of sprouts.
3. Time to roll it up! Slice before serving. And yes. You have to use chopsticks ;)
