I am becoming even more crazy about Japanese food! We had a Japanese friend over last weekend and she showed me some new things and, what’s more, I found a new Japanese supermarket in our city, where I discovered cool new stuff such as Daikon sprouts.
So this week was all about Japanes food. I made ramen from scratch, we had freestlye sushi for dinner twice and I had bento-box-style work lunches.
Now I also finally dare to use miso paste in the kitchen. Today I used miso paste to make a miso and sesame dipping sauce for these delicious Veggie Nori Wraps. According to the size and number of wraps, this is either a light meal or an appetizer.
The dipping sauce is also nice just to dip raw veggies or crackers.
Rolling up Nori sheets very tightly and accurate is not one of my key strengths. Maybe you are more skilled?
For 8 wraps:
For the dipping sauce:
Slice the avocados in half and spoon out the meat, mash with a fork and season with pepper and salt, set aside. Prepare the other veggies for the filling by shredding them thinly, using a mandoline and a knife. Spread the avocado mash on one end of a nori sheet and then pile the veggies on top. Roll everything up tight. In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the dipping sauce until smooth.
