Have you ever heard of sushi burritos? In this sushi recipe I turned to quinoa instead of white rice. And of course I didn’t add anything to the quinoa such as sugar to make it sticky. It’s all good, natural and healthy. As you are used from me, I will use only a few ingredients to make this recipe. And simple it is! These Red Cabbage Sushi Burritos are so fun and satisfying.
These delicious amazing red cabbage sushi burritos are probably the easiest sushi wraps that you will ever make.
You might think that sushi is too much of an effort to make, but this recipe will show you it isn’t. Some people stay away from making their own sushi because of the rolling part, but in this recipe I will skip that technique and you will see that these burritos will still taste delicious. Also, I hear people saying they think sushi is always raw fish. It isn’t. The word sushi actually refers to vinegared rice. You can put any ingredient in it you want to make healthy and tasty sushi. I opted for red cabbage.
Red cabbage is probably one of the prettiest foods to work with. It’s also a true beauty food since it can help getting rid of crow’s feet (which are a sign that you may have high cortisol levels). High cortisol can cause the skin to break down faster and wrinkles can appear. Red cabbage also contains vitamin C .
This recipe is the perfect way to introduce more cabbage into your diet. It is made with fresh, raw purple cabbage that’s practically bursting with skin beautifying vitamin C and other nutrients, and will make the rolls crispy. Not to forget the pumpkin seeds, which will provide this recipe with zinc.
Ok, let’s dig in. First we will just make a salad and then wrap it in nori. It’s really that simple.
- 4 sheets of nori
- half a cup of quinoa
- a cup of water
- a hand full of pumpkin seeds
- red cabbage (half)
- 2 tbsp tamari sauce
- Cook quinoa in boiling water for 15 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes (no longer because cold sushi does not work and if the sushi is too hot it will melt the nori).
- Once the quinoa has cooled stir In the tamari sauce, red cabbage and pumpkin seeds.
- Lay nori on a plate.
- Put about two to three table spoons on the nori. Once it is mostly rolled, spread some water on the end (this will help it stick) – do this for all the rolls.
- Roll, cut and serve.
- Feel free to add any spices or herbs to the cabbage salad.
