I’m moments away from packing my bags and heading to Toronto for the weekend. This trip is going to rock my little socks, clear off. So much goodness, in so few days.
I’ve organized a little meetup for Healthful Pursuit readers on Saturday. So if you’re in the area, sign up for this free super informal event here… there’s going to be swag bags!
On top of that, I get to hangout with some amazing like-minded women entrepreneurs at the WIBN conference AND I get to meet Danielle LaPorte, the super soulful lady behind The Desire Map. I’m absolutely jittering with anticipation over it all.
Also? Pretty pumped about today’s recipe, too. I’ve been holding out on this one for you guys for a little too long.
All this warm weather makes me want to prepare a cute little picnic full of sandwiches and go sit by a lake somewhere – major problem if you don’t have any bread in the house and 0 goods on hand to make any.
So, my sandwich hungry belly has had to get creative.
I had a package of rice wraps that had been collecting dust in my pantry for a coon’s age and nori sheets begging to be used in Kevin’s favorite chicken teriyaki sushi rolls. But not this time! No, no. I made a wrap out of them there wraps and rolls. Ah, yes I did.

- Wet rice paper sheet and place on a clean plate. Allow to sit for 1 minute to soften. Meanwhile, prepare your sandwich ingredients.
- Place the nori sheet on top of the rice paper sheet. Spread cheez whiz or other type of spread (hummus would be great) on one side of the nori.
- Add toppings (anything will work here but the fresh dill with the cheez whiz is incredible).
- Begin to roll, halfway up. Tuck in the sides, roll completely. Then allow the wrap to sit, stem side down, for a minute or so to stick together. If it's not sticking, add a touch of water.
You want to get the rice paper sheet fairly wet. The instructions tell you to wet a towel and place it over the sheet but I didn’t find that that worked all that well so I just ran it under cold water and let it sit for a couple of minutes. Place the nori sheet on top, and you’re just about there.
Add your filling to one half of the wrap, leaving room at the end. Then begin to roll up.
Tuck the ends in and keep rolling. This looks far more complex than it is. Everything sticks together really nicely.
Serve with a plate of fresh veggies and a tall glass of water. A perfect Spring lunch!
Now I’d love to hear from you!
What are your plans for the weekend?
If you could meet anyone, in the whole world, who would it be? Why?
Have a super fantastic weekend ;)
