Need Raw Food Protein?


Raw Dinners, Raw Protein

I get excited whenever I find a new raw food recipe that tastes great and leaves me feeling full and satisfied. And since most of us who are trying to focus on eating more raw food are always conscious of getting enough protein, this raw food protein recipe has become a favorite of mine.






2 cups (rounded) chopped Sunflower Seeds

1 tsp. Sea Salt

2 tsp. Onion Powder

2 Tbs. Olive Oil

2 1/2 Tbs. Lemon Juice

2 tsp. garlic powder

1/4 cup Lewis Lab Brewers Yeast

1 diced tomato, carrot, leafy greens, etc. (optional)

1 package Nori Wraps (raw and organic)

In a bowl, mix chopped sunflower seeds and all dry ingredients together, then mix with oil and lemon juice.

Packs of nori usually have about 20 sheets. Holding the stack of nori sheets (long ways, left to right) cut directly up the middle.

On each small section, use a spoon to spread the sunflower mix along the long edge the nori sheet. Fill to desired thickness.

Then roll up and cut into sections if desired.  Dehydrate (optional) for 2 hours 110 degrees. Serve or refrigerate.

What is Nori? It’s a dark green, dried sea vegetable that is common in Japanese cuisine. Its flavor is mild, a bit salty and very pleasant. Nori is roughly one third protein, one third fiber and contains many vitamins and minerals such as A, C, calcium, zinc, iodine and iron. I was never that crazy about foods from the ocean, but I have changed my opinion since I was introduced to the Raw Nori Wrap!

The sunflower seeds in this recipe are another source of raw food protein. Raw sunflower seeds are power-packed with healthy fats, fiber, minerals, vitamin E, and raw protein! In this recipe, they absorb the spices and lemon juice beautifully, making them taste far more amazing than just a simple seed. I hope you like this recipe as much as I do, because I am thoroughly “hooked” on its meaty, spicy tang… with just a hint of the sea!
