Procedure

To make the Shredded Veggie Filling:  Peel the carrots. Remove the core of the cabbage.  Seed the bell peppers.  Using a vegetable shredded or a box grater, shred all of the vegetables*.  Combine with the chopped cilantro and sunflower seeds.
 
To make the Nori Wraps:  Clear a “rolling station” like a clean cutting board.  Set up a small bowl of water nearby. 
Place one Nori wrapper on your rolling station, with the shiny side down (the rougher side facing up).  Use your fingers to spread a little bit of water along the top edge of the Nori sheet.  Spread about ½ cup of the Shredded Veggie Filling onto the bottom end of the Nori sheet.  Tight wrap the Nori sheet around the filling.  Continue rolling, as tightly as possible, to the end, until you have a long, maki-like Nori roll.  Use your fingers to seal in the edge.  The water should help you with this.  Continue with the remaining Nori sheets and filling.  Cut the Nori rolls in half.

Serve with Lemon Tahini Dressing.

* Chef’s Time Tip:  Short on time?  You can buy bag of pre-shredded vegetables in the produce section of your grocery.  Coleslaw mix works, but you can also experiment with some of the newer blends like broccoli slaw and “Power” slaw.

** Keeping it Raw?  To be truly raw, be sure to use raw (not roasted) sunflower seeds and untoasted Nori wrappers.
