Benefits of eating seaweed
There are a ton of health benefits in seaweed. A study in Marine Drugs notes, seaweed can provide a good supply of:
- polyunsaturated fatty acids
Seaweed is known to also be very rich in iodine which could be beneficial for thyroid function. Based on a sampling of a variety of different seaweeds in the Journal of Food and Drug Analysis, kombu sourced from Korea is the richest source of iodine, followed by wakame and nori.
2 avocado, thinly sliced
2 cup carrots, julienned
2 cup medium-sized seedless cucumber, julienned
2 tbsp of olive oil
2 tsp of wasabi powder**
2 tsp cold water
2 tbsp of soy sauce (**Use coconut aminos instead for gluten-free, soy-free, Whole30, Paleo)
8 sheets of plain nori sheets*
- Break eggs into a small bowl and whisk well.
- Heat a non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Add the olive oil.
- Once the pan is hot, add in the whisked eggs. Do not disturb the eggs. We are going for an omelet like technique here.
- Once the eggs are cooked thoroughly on the bottom then flip your “omelet” to cook the other side.
- Once eggs are done, remove from the pan, add them to cutting board and let them cool.
- Next, prepare your julienned vegetables and slice your avocado.
- Add wasabi powder to a small bowl. Add 1 tsp of cold water and mix well.
- Take each nori seaweed sheet and cut them into four square equal sized pieces.
- Cut your cooled eggs lengthwise and add them to your vegetable dish.
- Pour in the soy sauce (or coconut aminos) to your wasabi mixture bowl.
- Take one nori piece and add sliced cucumber, carrots, avocado, and egg. Add a little spoonful of the wasabi sauce, wrap up and eat. Enjoy!
*You could also use the roasted nori sheets that are cut into smaller pieces and are usually sold as on-the-go snack packs. Some Asian markets also have roasted and salted nori sheets and those will work for this recipe as well. Just remember that there is salt on these roasted/salted nori sheets already, so be mindful of how much soy sauce (if using soy sauce) you use so it doesn’t end up too salty. **If you’re concerned with staying within specific dietary restriction, double-check your wasabi powder to ensure the ingredients are to your standards.
