Un-Sushi Snackers {Paleo, Vegan, Gluten Free}

Un-sushi snackers are a healthy grain free, dairy free treat that can tide you over between meals. Or you can load up your seaweed with lots of ingredients for a full vegan or paleo meal.

I've talked about my love of seaweed before. It's super healthy with its fiber, antioxidants, potassium, and iodine. It makes a great salad and an even better wrapper for more tasty things like this vegan sushi.

The inspiration for this veggie sushi comes from my food pal Alisa Fleming and her latest book, Go Dairy Free.

Go Dairy free book

You may remember me raving about her first book Eat Dairy Free when I made her thai dip with broccoli trees. Yum!

Her new Go Dairy Free book has over 250 dairy-free recipes. She also has gluten free, egg free, and vegan options so there's something for everyone here.

If you're new to going dairy free, this is definitely a good manual to help you with the transition. Alisa spells out all the great dairy substitutes for things like butter, cheese, milk, and more. She tells you how to shop, eat out, and travel while watching your dairy intake.

If you're a dairy free regular like me, you'll also find many different options with chapters that cover breakfast, soup, warm sides, desserts, and snacks.

I decided to make her un-sushi snackers because who couldn't use another healthy snack recipe in their lives?

You're probably going to want to double the sunflower seed sauce with this recipe. It's a spoon licker.

Alisa's veggie sushi includes carrots and cucumbers, but she also mentions other good filling options like leftover roasted sweet potatoes, stir-fried eggplant, or any other cooked vegetables.
