Healthy Beetroot Vegetarian Sushi Rolls Recipe
Directions
Whisk the egg in a bowl and have it pan fried (like the way do make an omelette) to a thin layer. Let it cool down and have it sliced into long, thin strips. Blend water together with chopped beetroot in a blender until it comes out as a liquid. Let steamed Brown Rice to cool down (you can also refrigerate it), and add blended beetroot liquid, lime juice and salt in. Fold the brown rice a couple of time until all turn red.
Lay one nori wrapper on a rolling sheet, and spread the brown rice in a thin layer across 3/4 of the nori wrapper (leaving a strip of 1/4 of the nori wrapper with no brown rice spread on it). Think about the nori wrapper in four sections from right to left, A-B-C with C being 1/4 of the nori wrapper with no brown rice on it. Now, carefully line a layer of grilled tofu (2-4 slices) on A, and then on top of it, place a horizontal strip of Avocado (On 1/2 of A) and then with another horizontal strip of Carrots and Egg strips next to the Avocado (On the other 1/2 of A). Bear in mind not to overfill the wrap or you will not be able to seal it. Roll up the rolling sheet tightly from one edge towards the opposite one and then seal the end up by moistening the end and pressing it tightly. Repeat the same procedures with the other nori wrapper. Cut them up with a sharp knife into small bite-size pieces. Ta-dah these Beetroot Sushi Rolls are now ready!
