What's not to love about Japanese Maki Rolls?! They are so delicious, and have the perfect balance of "light yet filling". Create these raw vegan maki rolls with your partner, a friend, or even your children. We love the pop of contrasting color from all of the fresh vegetables. In this recipe Jenné Claiborne uses bell pepper, purple cabbage, avocado, pickled ginger, red lentils and sprouted quinoa inside of her nori sheets. Sprouted quinoa is a great source of alkaline forming protein, is very easy to digest and assimilate, and still retains those life giving enzymes and phyto-nutrients that would otherwise be destroyed with cooking.
